Call for Session Organizers 

Please consider organizing a technical session for the upcoming ACS meeting in New Orleans. Like San Francisco, we expect this to be a well-attended meeting with many international participants. The success of the meeting, and our Division’s contribution, depends on volunteers like you to envision exciting session topics and invite the best people in the world to contribute.
The overarching theme of the Spring 2018 ACS National Meeting is the Food-Energy-Water Nexus. We invite you to submit symposium proposals related to this broad theme and other topics of current interest to the geochemistry community. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
·         Geochemical considerations for renewable energy production
·         Geochemical processes related to fossil fuel extraction
·         Geochemistry of CO2 geologic storage
·         Mining metals, minerals, and gems
·         Elements of critical concern for energy production and storage
·         Nutrient management for sustainable food production
·         Balancing water quantity and quality needs for food and energy production
·         Nuclear waste management and remediation
·         Urban geochemistry
·         Mineral-water interface structure and reactivity
·         Reactivity of biogenic minerals
·         Microbially-driven geochemical reactions
·         Biogeochemistry of the deep subsurface
·         Reactivity of nano-particles and nano-pores
·         Honorary session for notable geochemist
To organize a symposium, please complete the linked form and send it to Bill Burgos (wdb3@psu.edu) and Nadine Kabengi (kabengi@gsu.edu). The deadline for symposium proposals is July 3, 2017. Abstracts for these symposia will then be accepted from August 21, 2017 to October 16, 2017. Thank you for your consideration.

Congratulations to Dr. Susan Brantley!

It is our great pleasure to announce that Dr. Sue Brantley Distinguished Professor of Geosciences at the Pennsylvania State University was awarded the 2017 Geochemistry Division Medal. Sue is recognized for her outstanding scientific accomplishments and impact in the fields of geochemistry and Earth surface processes, leadership, mentorship of students and junior scientists, and service to the geochemistry community. Her highly influential work on the kinetics of mineral-fluid interactions and weathering rates of natural systems, for example, has truly and profoundly changed our understanding of geochemical systems.  Please join us in congratulating Sue!

More information about the award can be found on the Geochemistry Medal Tab.
