There have been a number of presentations at professional conferences about GRSLE project work by students and other research team members. Most of these are preliminary reports of student research projects that provide basic observational data on the GRSLE project area. For other types of information on the project’s research look at the group of Master’s theses and Publications on GRSLE related work.
