Biography

Dr. Green is a research scientist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) and Faculty Affiliate in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Previously, Dr. Green was a Senior Scientist with CSIRO Australia, Land & Water. He has Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Stanford University, and a B.S. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Washington. Dr. Green's research is focused primarily on understanding water movement in complex terrain and soils as it relates to plant growth, and how to characterize and scale spatial patterns of terrain, soil, water and plant variables. He has conducted field-based measurements of these spatial and temporal variables for scaling and modeling of soil hydrology, including surface run-off/on, infiltration and subsurface water fluxes in heterogeneous media. Dr. Green's international work includes simulation of projected climate change effects on groundwater recharge, which led to membership on a UNESCO panel of experts to assess climate change related to subsurface water. In 2005, Dr. Green was a guest professor with the Institute for Terrestrial Ecosystems at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland.
