Jason Bellino

Biography

I'm currently the project chief of the Floridan Aquifer System Groundwater Availability Study (https://fl.water.usgs.gov/floridan) and my interests are in groundwater flow modeling. I have extensive experience with ArcGIS and enjoy developing python code for data analysis.

Education:

Master's in Geology, Univ. of South Florida, 2009.

—thesis: Effects of geomorphic setting on shallow-groundwater exchange and water temperature of salmon-bearing headwater streams of the Lower Kenai Peninsula, Alaska

Bachelor's in Environmental Science and Policy, Univ. of South Florida, 2005, with a minor in Geology.
