Welch Crag

Yesterday my good friend, Kathy Welch, learned she had a crag named after her! (After she won a service award at Byrd Polar Research Center).

Welch Crag: 77°17'08"S Latitude, 160°36'37"E Longitude. A steep rugged peak, which is marked by secondary spires rising to 1500 m in the north-east part of McSaveney Spur, Willett Range, Victoria Land. Topographic Map: Webb Lake (1:50,000).

Here's to Kathy! She'll be blogging from the Antarctic soon in her 16th field season!

Hi Sarah,

That's cool about the crag.

Last week at a short course on processing GPS data, I ran into some OSU folks who knew you --Stephanie, Adrian, and perhaps some others.

It was a great course. I'm looking forward to processing the GPS data my students have been collecting from the San Bernardino Mountains to monitor elastic strain accumulation along the San Andreas fault.

Have fun in the cornfields. Hopefully I'll see you at AGU.

I'm happy I'm not the only one who thinks this is exciting. Thank you Sarah! Congratulations on your defense yesterday. No turning into retro trash until after GSA, or wait, not until after Portland! Have a great time in Houston.
