Everyone in the computer science and math departments had some role in helping me choose the direction I’m on now. Also, my research advisors, Karen Sutherland and Noel Petit from the computer science department, and Mark Engebretson from the physics department, were particularly influential. If I wouldn’t have started doing research with them, I probably wouldn’t have made the decision to go on and continue on the research track in grad school and afterwards.” Bue’s internship with the Lunar and Planetary Institute involved his working in the field know as “Computational Geomorphology.” His project was to implement an algorithm to automatically generate maps of Martian terrain. According to Bue, NASA has gathered millions of measurements of Martian terrain using an instrument know as the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter. “Currently, it’s a painstaking process to create these maps, since the majority of the work is done manually by analyzing images of the Martian surface. I helped develop a technique to have a computer automatically determine features of the Martian terrain, and create maps from that information.” Bue initially heard of this internship when browsing tech-interns.com. He applied for it online and was contacted by one of the staff scientists who believed his background in CS/math would be of use to the advisor. The majority of the interns, Bue said, had backgrounds in geology or physics. He was actually the only CS/math intern. “However,” Bue added, “I believe my interdisciplinary research with the CS/math department at Augsburg may have played a role in their decision to select me.” While Bue is currently focusing on his graduate coursework at Purdue, he hopes to find another summer internship, possibly, and hopefully, he added, with NASA. After he receives his Ph.D. he plans to continue doing research either in academia or in a private lab. DATA SENSORS IN ANTARCTICA Above: the real-time status of the Automatic Geophysical Observatories (AGO) network in Antarctica. Each box shows the location of a sensor atop the ice sheet (P1-P6) and its status. Red indicates that none of that sensor’s radio channels are currently being received. Amber shows that some of the channels are being picked up, while green indicates that all of the data channels are coming through clearly. The status information shown above is updated via satellite every 3 minutes. Augsburg Computer Science provides data for space weather The National Science Foundation began a program in 1990 to deploy a set of six Automated Geophysical Observatories at selected remote sites on the Antarctic continent. Augsburg’s Physics department is active in this program, in working with data from search coil magnetometers from all six of AGOs. Augsburg’s Computer Science Department is involved in distributing AGO data to users worldwide, and in providing daily monitoring services via the world wide web. The British Antarctic Survey also began deploying such AGOs, and since 1994 Augsburg, along with the University of New Hampshire, has provided search coil magnetometers for these observatories, again with support from the NSF. The AGO data that Augsburg’s Computer Science department maintains is accessed daily by researchers across the globe (including our Physics department on campus), space meteorologists, and USAF Space Command.
