Deborah Green worked for more than 30 years as an environmental and engineering geologist in consulting and industry. Today she applies her technical knowledge and experience to a writing career and has been recognized for her work in raising awareness in science and science communication as the 2018-19 Richard H. Jahns Distinguished Lecturer in Applied Geology. In her talk, Green discusses connections between her work as a geologist, which aims to understand and convey the wonder of the landscape and the complexity of earth processes, and her fiction writing, which explores the complexity of human emotion and relationships through essays, stories, and poetry.

Deborah Green earned a BS in geology from the University of Rochester and an MS in engineering geology from Texas A&M University.

The Richard H. Jahns Lectureship is supported by the Environmental and Engineering Geology Division (EEGD) of the Geological Society off America (GSA) and the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists (AEG).
