8 Challenge Problems... Answer them all and explain each? Be careful... some of these are designed to try and trick you. Good luck and have fun! What strategies did you use in each?
I'm a volcano seismologist, so I study the earthquakes that take place in volcanic systems. Many of the volcanoes that I study are undersea, so much of my data is collected at sea.
I also study seismic signals associated with landsliding, so I guess overall I'm kind of a hazards junkie. I don't have a ton of easy reading about my work, but all (or at least many...I can't remember) of my published papers may be found here (although those are going to be pretty dense): https://works.bepress.com/jacqueline_caplan-auerbach/.
I am currently working on a project in which we deployed seismometers on the seafloor near Kilauea volcano during its recent eruptive activity, and my university did a short article about it here: https://westerntoday.wwu.edu/features/geologys-jackie-caplan-auerbach-spends-week-at-sea-dropping-instruments-offshore-of-kilauea.
They also did a video about our work, although that was mostly done as a marketing tool:https://vimeo.com/296791353/9be62098b6?fbclid=IwAR1HvyXRNImVDiGxLEiSglLCfC40Zts-EqhD-g4vj_l7RJxBYGLVd1NlznA.
My web page is an embarrassment, but there's a tiny bit of info there: http://myweb.facstaff.wwu.edu/caplanj/

Also write your question down in your Science book!
Jenny Stern is the scientist that we will be connecting with, and who you'll be able to ask questions of. Read more about her here:
Your goal is to ask her a robot question, detective question, judge, and inventor questions about her and what she does or knows as a Polar Bear Scientist.
