Linda M. V. Martel: Professional History [ Current Work ] [ Web Expertise ] [ Publications ]

EDUCATION
M.S., geology, Arizona State University, Tempe. Thesis title: "Radar Observations of Basaltic Lava Flows and Fissure Vents: Craters of the Moon, Idaho." Thesis advisor: Dr. Ronald Greeley.
B.S., geology, University of California, Davis.

EXPERIENCE
     CURRENT WORK :: SINCE 1993 I HAVE WORKED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HAWAI'I ON A VARIETY OF NASA RESEARCH, EDUCATIONAL, AND PUBLIC OUTREACH PROJECTS RELATED TO METEORITES AND THE EXPLORATION OF THE MOON, MARS, AND ASTEROIDS.

     Academic Support, Planetary Geosciences, Hawai‘i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, University of Hawai‘i. (1993-present)  Work: Petrologic Evolution of the Moon — research to determine the petrologic/geochemical characteristics of lunar highland rocks and of their parent magmas to understand the bulk composition, differentiation, and geologic evolution of the Moon. With P.I. Jeff Taylor, I've assisted with the quantitative X-ray diffraction analyses of the fine fractions of lunar regolith samples, electron microprobe analyses, and image processing to make mineral maps from SEM-derived elemental maps. Differentiation and Resource Potential of the Moon — research to understand the nature and distribution of evolved lunar rocks, how they formed, and their potential as ore bodies. This work with Jeff Taylor involved detailed sample analyses using the petrographic and scanning electron microscopes, and the electron microprobe at U. H., as well as remote sensing studies. Geochemical mapping — of the Moon and Mars using orbital remote sensing data. I have worked on image processing of Mars Odyssey Gamma Ray Spectrometer data and Lunar Prospector data to map and understand the surfaces and geological evolution of these bodies. With Jeff Taylor, we published multivariate classification maps of element concentrations on Mars. Education and public outreach — projects to share the value and excitement of planetary science, exploration, and space resource utilization. I write the scientific and technical content, do layout and design, graphics, and coding/programming of planetary science publications and multimedia products. I've developed hands-on science activities while working with a team of local educators to help produce a 146-page teacher's guide with activities about the Moon (published by NASA), and have instructed at local and national training conferences. E/PO Accomplishments include: Writing, editing, and designing web sites and interactive, educational software in planetary geosciences for: Planetary Science Research Discoveries web site, Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium, Hawai‘i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, NASA programs and scientists, K-14 curricula, and the public. I've been an instructor for Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium's summer courses in planetary geosciences for educators, at science symposiums at local K-12 schools, and at community outreach science programs. I serve on the selection committee for Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium's Undergraduate Fellowship Program.
