About Us

The purpose of our Division is to advance the study of geochemistry. Members of our division study a wide range of topics including, but not limited to, biogeochemistry, isotope geochemistry, interfacial geochemistry, cosmochemistry, petroleum geochemistry, computational geochemistry, and microbial geochemistry.  

 The goals of the division are:

  1. To encourage the highest standards of excellence in developing and applying chemistry and related sciences as they pertain to the understanding and exploration of the Earth's geosphere and that of extraterrestrial bodies.
  2. To promote the development of geochemical science in both academic institutions and in industry.
  3. To improve the qualifications and usefulness of geochemists through high standards of professional ethics, education, and attainment.
