PBO Rocky Mountain Regional Engineer Steve Borenstein and Field Engineer David Kasmer loaded up their truck and trailer with over a ton of GPS equipment and drove from their office in Boulder, Colorado to Bozeman, Montana, where they will remain for the duration of the summer. Steve, David, and Field Engineer Tom Lyman will install 12 (8 shallow-drilled and 4 deep-drilled) GPS monuments and set up a communications network in the Yellowstone/Teton region. Concurrently, the crew is working on reconnaissance and permitting activities throughout Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho.
Work in this region is difficult due to restricted sensitive land areas and wildlife in rugged terrain. Additionally, tourism is high in these areas this time of year, making mobilization and deployment logistics more difficult.
Once the installations are finished, the crew will return to Boulder to plan their next series of fieldwork in Arizona and New Mexico.
