Honorary Lecturers

Periodically selected on the basis of their outstanding reputation in the field of economic geology. These lecturers travel widely as part of their normal activities and frequently visit areas not well served by other SEG Traveling Lecturers. Although not funded by the Society, SEG Honorary Lecturers constitute a key part of the Society's outreach, improving awareness of SEG and understanding of economic geology. All travel costs associated with honorary lecturer visits may be the responsibility of the host.
