New Student Interns in St. Petersburg, FL

 previous story | next story

The USGS' Center for Coastal and Regional Marine Studies in St. Petersburg, FL, recently welcomed two new student interns who are working there this summer.

Keyla Marin
Keyla Marin
Keyla Marin comes from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagčez, where she is a student in a 5-year program in electrical engineering and a participant in the Partnership for Spatial and Computer Research, sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). She will also graduate with a certificate in remote sensing and geographic information systems (GIS).

Keyla's prior professional experience includes a summer working for the USGS as a hydrologic technician in Austin, TX. This summer, she is working with John Brock and Tonya Clayton in St. Petersburg, FL, preparing time-series animations of Chesapeake Bay satellite imagery and compiling ancillary data. Keyla enjoys travel and, as a serious museum buff, is delighted to be working less than a block from the world-famous Salvador Dali Museum!

Lance Mosher
Lance Mosher
Lance Mosher is a summer intern from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL, where he has just completed his freshman year as a double major in physics and geophysics. His recreational interests include skiing, movie-watching, and playing: playing guitar, playing pool, and playing Frisbee among the fire ants. His previous professional experience includes work at Eckerd College's Wallace Boathouse plus a summer as (in his words) chief "copy monkey."

This summer, Lance is working with Tonya Clayton and John Brock, processing lidar data collected in national seashores and pitching in as a jack-of-all-trades wherever needed. (Both Keyla and Lance promise not to ask for too much time in front of the copy machine!)
