Graham E. Fogg was hired at U.C. Davis in 1989 and retired in 2020 as Professor of Hydrogeology and Hydrogeologist in the Agricultural Experiment Station. He holds an undergraduate degree in hydrology from the University of New Hampshire, a master’s degree from the University of Arizona, and a doctorate in geology from the University of Texas.
At Davis Prof. Fogg taught undergraduate and graduate courses in hydrology, geostatistics, and climate change. He conducted research on contaminant transport below ground. His work, based on quantitative approaches from statistics and geology, advanced our understanding of the properties and behavior of groundwater systems, including the movement, quality and sustainability of groundwater and interactions with surface water.
Graham served as co-director for the University of California Water Security and Sustainability Research initiative for a decade from 2012. On campus he directed the Center for Climate Change, Water, and Society, a program sponsored by the National Science Foundation and integrating graduate education research and training. He chaired the Hydrology Graduate Group for more than a decade, and he also served on a committee to advise California on groundwater and climate change. In 2020 the Groundwater Resources Association of California gave Graham a Lifetime Achievement Award and named him the David Keith Todd Lecturer. He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. Other honors include the O.E. Meinzer Award and the Birdsall-Dreiss Distinguished Lecturership from the Geological Society of America.
Graham Fogg is interviewed by Prof. Thomas Harter, a colleague in the Department of Land, Air, and Water Resources.
