Generic Site Characteristics Study, New York Low Level Waste Commission, New York.  Digitized and converted subsurface geologic features to state plane coordinate system for use by GIS to aid siting process.

Travis Field, Army Corps of Engineers, Georgia
Prepared maps, figures and graphs as required from raw data, sketches, and field notes to delineate geophysical features.
Griswold Creek Diversion Project, Northern California Power Agency, California.  Extracted pertinent data from raw data and prepared figures showing seismic refraction lines and depth models.
White Rock Penstock Diversion Project, Eldorado Irrigation District, California.  Extracted pertinent data from raw data and prepared figures showing seismic refraction lines and depth models.
Bridge Scour Studies, North Carolina Department of Transportation, North Carolina.  Assisted with preliminary bridge scour assessments at North Carolina Department of Transportation Office.  Work involved research and compilation of structural, geographical, and hydrological data from various sources and calculation of flows and velocities related to specific bridges to determine risk of scour damage to each.  Assisted with field work as required to obtain information necessary to perform detailed scour analysis of various bridges.  Work involved surveying, soil sampling, and local record research to obtain soil and historical flood level data.  Prepared figures for publication of detailed scour analysis reports.
