Activity Narrative

Summer NEES REU interns from UCSB and UCLA spent a day at the Garner Valley field site. Dr. Jamie Steidl of UCSB gave a tour of the seismic monitoring facilities. Dr. Bob NIgbor and Dr. Jon Stewart of UCLA gave a demonstration of a shaker driving vibrations in the Soil-Foundation-Structure_Interaction test frame. The event was attended by more than 20 summer students.
