With instructions from seismic observer Bryce Grimm forwarded by Mayo Thompson, Sean Flores pounds the dust during Louie's Applied Geophysics class field exercise in March 2009. This ultra-high-resolution seismic reflection experiment succeeded in imaging the base of a canal bank near Fallon, only 2 m down. Photo by J. Louie.
