Susan Hubbard, Associate Laboratory Director for the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area, will be inducted into the Alameda County Women’s Hall of Fame, at an annual awards ceremony on March 30. Hubbard is being honored for her scientific contributions to key environmental challenges of our time, including the use of geophysical methods to quantify how watersheds and ecosystems are responding to changing conditions, and implications for water and biogeochemical cycles.

Susan Hubbard joins 13 other local women who represent the region’s rich diversity and a remarkable range of achievements made working to address issues such as environmental sustainability; and racial, income, and healthcare inequality; and to strengthen access to arts education and athletics programs for girls and young women.
