Geochemical Society


Geochemical Society

The "Geochemical Society" is a nonprofit and international scientific society for the purpose of encouraging the application of chemistry to solve problems involving geology and cosmology. Their offices are located in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri.

Affiliations

The Geochemical Society is affiliated with both the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Union of Geological Sciences

Organization and meetings

The Geochemical Society is run by a board of directors who meet annually. The last meeting was at the 18th annual V.M. Goldschmidt Conference, being held from July 13-18 at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. The society co-sponsored the conference, along with the European Association for Geochemistry.

Membership

The Geochemical Society lists that members come from "such fields as organic geochemistry, high and low-temperature geochemistry, petrology, meteoritics, fluid-rock interaction, and isotope geochemistry". Membership costs are $30 a year for a Professional, $10 a year for Student, and $12 a year for Senior. Membership includes a subscription to "Elements" and also offers discounts on their various publications.

Publications

The Geochemical Society publishes, co-publishes, or sponsors the following:

* Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta (GCA), 24 issues a year
* Geochemistry Geophysics Geosystems (G-cubed), electronically
* Elements, 6 issues a year
* Geochemical news, 4 issues a year on-line
* Special Publications Series, at various times
* Reviews in Mineralogy & Geochemistry (RiMG), volumes
