Faculty and Staff
- Julio Betancourt view CV
Julio Betancourt studies ecosystem and watershed responses to
climate variability on different temporal and spatial scales.
Along with his colleagues and students, Julio has contributed to
networks of rodent midden and tree ring data in the Americas.
He has designed, tested and/or applied a wide variety of approaches,
including historical documents and photographs, instrumental hydrological
and climatic data, long-term vegetation plots, tree rings, stable
isotopes, ancient DNA, biometrical measurements, alluvial stratigraphy,
and even ice cores to reconstruct the past.
