Barbara Wortham, MS

Barbara received my undergraduate degree at the University of Texas at Austin in Environmental Sciences and masters degree in Geology from Boston College. Her masters research involved the use of strontium isotopes in cave deposits to reconstruct rainfall in the South American Tropics, as well as using modeling techniques to characterize the South American Summer Monsoon. She is now at University of California Davis pursuing a PhD.
