U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientist Marlene Noble was awarded the Department of the Interior's Superior Service Award at the USGS' 2002 Western Region Awards Ceremony held on September 24 in Menlo Park, CA. Although she could not attend the ceremony, Marlene received a warm round of applause as Western Regional Director Doug Buffington read the following summary of Marlene's citation:

Marlene has made outstanding achievements in her career as a USGS scientist, but today we want to especially recognize her efforts to help other scientists advance their careers by serving as a mentor. Marlene's service on the Women's Advisory Committee coincided with a time of significant change in the bureau regarding the recognition of women's issues and of diversity issues. Her leadership and advice proved invaluable. It is a special pleasure to recognize Marlene's efforts in developing a mentoring program that has significantly contributed to the strength and core competency of the USGS by creating a responsive, flexible, and multidisciplinary workforce. And, of course, she has served as a mentor herself, directly enhancing the careers of several colleagues.
