0412-EVA4Report

Crew members: Jonathan Beechner, Victoria LaBarre, and Otsmar Villarroel

Locations:
12 N 518524 4249129 (sandstone/hoodoo)

ATV: 1 – 2 – 3

Time: 10:00 am depart – 11:00 am return

Purpose: Geology EVA. Expose students to doing geology field work while staying “in-sim.” Follow a predetermined path and stop at a specific waypoint to make observations or complete various tasks.

Summary:
EVA departure was slightly delayed due to the arrival of the San Francisco Film Society crew. During the EVA, we examined pieces of sandstone and used a Brunton compass to obtain the strike and dip of the cap rock on a hoodoo located at the site. Everyone was able to learn and demonstrate how to use the compass. The SFFS crew filmed us doing this and also interviewed us “in-sim” through the use of HAM radios.
