Nicolás E. Young

Principal Investigator

Quaternary surficial geologist, paleoclimatologist, and geochemist whose main interests rest in understanding centennial- to millennial-scale changes in ice sheets and glaciers, assessing the climatic driving mechanisms behind these changes, and understanding how these ice masses shape the landscape. I specialize in using cosmogenic isotopes (in situ 10Be, 14C, and 26Al), combined with more traditional field-based approaches (stratigraphy, lake sediments, radiocarbon dating) to develop robust chronologies of glacier change.
