Fieldwork in the Josephine Peridotite

We returned to the Josephine Peridotite for more sampling of mantle shear zones. In addition to graduate students Nik Deems and Katie Kumamoto, Stanford undergraduate EKela Autry joined us to get data for her summer project. We were also joined by Eric Mittelstaedt and Kate Kaminski from the University of Idaho for Kate’s project on helium in the shear zones. We learnt the lesson not to come in July, as temperatures reached above 100°F!
