Deborah Green holds geology degrees from the University of Rochester and the Center for Engineering Geology at Texas A&M. She’s a licensed professional geologist with over 30 years of experience working on environmental and engineering projects across the United States. More than 20 of those years, she was a self-employed consultant. Now, semi-retired, she’s written a novel whose protagonist is an engineering geologist working on a dam with a problematic foundation.

“I’m Deborah Green, and I’m happy to be named the 2018-2019 Richard H. Jahns Distinguished Lecturer in Applied Geology. The lectureship is supported by the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG) and the Environmental and Engineering Geology Division (EEGD) of the Geological Society of America (GSA). The purpose of the lectureship is to promote student awareness of Applied Geology. It is named for Richard H. Jahns, who was a professor at Caltech from 1946-1960, Pennsylvania State University from 1960-1965, and served as dean of the School of Earth Sciences at Stanford from 1965-1979. At Stanford, he established a new department, Applied Earth Sciences, blending traditional geology studies with applied aspects of the geosciences. Professor Jahns was known for his challenging field courses, his practical inclinations, his superior mapping skills, and his wit. The Jahns Lectureship has been awarded jointly by AEG and GSA annually since 1988. I’m particularly pleased to be the second woman Jahns Lecturer, and I hope we’ll have more in the near future.”
