Weekly Report 6/24-28/2013
What did you do this week?:
This week, the entire group has all been uploading muon counts from overnight each morning. I have also continued my ozone vs. muons project. So far there hasn't been any correlation between the two data measurements, but this week seemed a bit more connected. When the ozone level drops or rises, the muon counts seem to do the same. I can't tell for sure yet until I graph them on an excel spreadsheet.
Why did you do that?:
During the day, I collect data for the project on ozone vs. muons because in order to get accurate results and make a more accurate conclusion, I need to have as big of a sample size as I can. So I can measure the data on my project, I conduct this during the day, so that leaves overnight to leave the counters running and just record the muon counts without me having to watch them.
What are you doing next?:
Next week I will continue to collect data on the daily ozone measurements and the half-hourly muon counts. I will also still be running the counters overnight to upload the data on the quarknet site.
Why are you doing that?:
I need a large enough sample size for my ozone vs. muons project. Another reason why I'm running the padles overnight is to get a large data file instead of a smaller one during the day that would only last a few hours.
