William C. Haneberg



I’m a geologist whose work over the years has focused  on earth movements of one kind or anotherlandslides, rockslides, debris flows, land subsidence, earth fissures, and other geologic hazards— that occur either naturally or as the result of human activities. I’ve also worked on a variety of other topics like the effect of faults on subsurface fluid flow, Himalayan geomorphology, computational geology, structural geology, and petroleum geology.

My field experience includes projects throughout the United States, Papua New Guinea, Nepal, Mexico, and the Indian Himalaya. If you’d like to see some of the places I’ve worked and traveled, you’re welcome to visit my photography web pages at www.billhaneberg.com.

I currently live in Houston and work on offshore geohazard assessments around the world for Fugro GeoConsulting.

Before joining Fugro, I was an independent consulting geologist (1999-2011), Assistant Director and Senior Engineering Geologist with the New Mexico Bureau of Mines & Mineral Resources (1989-1999), and a petroleum geologist. I’ve also taught as an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati, New Mexico Tech and Portland State University.
