Project GRAND 2017

Project GRAND uses proportional wire chamber stations to measure muons as they hit the ground.  Keeping the stations operational by troubleshooting various hardware and software issues was a major part of the summer work.  20 station huts were brought back online.  Upgrades to the project included updating parts of the monitoring software, updating the wiki, re-writing directions for the gas changeover procedures, and building a better understanding of the system’s data storage and retrieval process.  New investigations included compiling data to search for solar flares,
