New Goldschmidt Lecture Honoring Robert Berner (EAG & GS)

Students and friends of the late Robert Berner have worked to establish an annual lecture at the Goldschmidt Conference to commemorate his intellectual legacy in geochemistry. The lecture is on a ‘Berner’ subject, which includes a wide range of topics associated with elemental cycling at the Earth’s surface (molecular to planetary scale, modern to ancient oceanic and terrestrial systems, evolution of the biosphere, etc). The lecturers are selected jointly by the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry. Contributions form an endowment to support the lecturer’s travel to Goldschmidt every year.
