Dr. Susan Hubbard, a staff scientist in the Earth Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, has been chosen to serve as the 2010 Geological Society of America's (GSA) Birdsall-Dreiss Lecturer. The endowed lectureship is made to one person annually by the GSA Hydrogeology Division based on two criteria. The nominee must be (1) a renowned scientist whose publication record and research have had national and international impact in the field of hydrogeology and (2) an outstanding speaker. Hubbard is the 32nd GSA Birdsall-Dreiss Lecturer, and the first from a DOE national laboratory. Hubbard has made major contributions to the field of hydrogeophysics through her research, which is sponsored by DOE's Office of Biological and Environmental Research.
