oustanding high school student research

I'm posting this on behalf of Arum Sharma, a talented Alabama high school student who is participating in the SID program through our NSF/CISM colleagues at Alabama A&M University. During the summer of 2007, following his junior year in high school, Arum participated in AAMU Physics Department’s Astrophysics Summer Research Program. His task for the summer was to analyze SID data from monitors around the world, including the one on top of AAMU's Physics building. By taking raw SID data and generating more visual-friendly graphs using a Linux program, Arum was able to identify the signatures associated with solar flares. He then documented these solar events and measured their intensities using the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) database. He even researched the effects of local events, such as thunderstorms and daily sunrise, on VLF waves.
Arum recently made a website compiling his research., He's hoping it serves as a useful resource for other students interested in knowing more about SID monitors. Check out:

Great job, Arum!!!
