Brad Carr, University of Wyoming; Penn State graduate student Andrew Shaughnessy; and EESI postdoctoral scholar Xin Gu at the Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory. Carr is assembling tools to log — lower instruments that can send and receive signals, or even take high-resolution images, down a borehole — a 115-foot deep borehole drilled into the valley floor at the research site.
