Faculty Spotlight: Julie Bartley

Posted on February 14th, 2020 by

Julie Bartley (Geology) published a paper in Astrobiology with Madison Adams ’19 and 13 additional colleagues titled “Is a Linear or a Walkabout Protocol More Efficient When Using a Rover to Choose Biologically Relevant Samples in a Small Region of Interest?” The article reports that rover-driven science on other planets produces a better sample set when the rover is allowed to explore an area of interest prior to taking samples. The sample analysis portion of this study formed the main dataset in Adams’ senior thesis.
