Susan Hubbard Selected as the 2016 Hal Mooney Award Recipient

The Hal Mooney Award recognizes an individual for extraordinary near-surface geophysical scientific achievements and community service.

Susan Hubbard (LBNL) will be honored at the upcoming Society of Exploration Geophysicists Annual meeting as the 2016 recipient of the Hal Mooney award. This award is bestowed upon an individual “in recognition of scientific and technical excellence and innovation leading to the advancement of near-surface geophysics and in recognition of long-term, tireless, and enthusiastic support of the near-surface geophysics community through education, outreach efforts, professional service, or development of opportunities with other professional disciplines that employ geophysics.” Susan’s award citation describes her technical contributions in geophysical analysis approaches and use of obtained information to better understand terrestrial hydrological, chemical and microbial processes; her role in nurturing the expansion of near surface hydrogeophysics as a scientific discipline; and her mentorship of early career near-surface geophysicists.
