Installing Spikes on a Tromino Seismograph
Many users of Tromino ENGY and Zero units have complained that the longer, pointed studs seem too tight to screw into the bottom lugs of the units. This is due, in part, to very tight tolerances when the lugs are tapped for the threads on the legs. However, there is another possibility which you must guard against and that is cross-threading.
Our new 12-channel hydrophone string is a skinny thing!
This new, slender hydrophone string is just the ticket for collecting seismic data in a narrow borehole. With a maximum outside dimension of only 1.25", the cable will easily fit into any 2" ID borehole. The cable is outfitted with (12) HTI-96 hydrophones (unamplified) at 3-foot intervals and has a 250 foot lead terminated with a Geometrics-type Bendix 61 connector at one end and a small stainless stress anchor at the other.

UCL to MARS
In 2017, we had the pleasure of working with Elke Mergny and Crew 178 from UCL to MARS program in their experimental stay at the research station in Utah. A recent article in National Geographic (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/photography/proof/2018/05/mars-on-earth-nasa-training/) reminded us of that project and we asked Elke if she would write us a description of her time there. She graciously provided us with the following account.
