We're pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 IAGC Awards! Congratulations to all the recipients, and thank you for your service to the IAGC and the geochemical community!IAGC Fellow - David Long, Michigan State University; William Orem, US Geological Survey; Hitchon Award - Huaming Guo, School of Water Resources and Environment, China University of Geosciences.

The International Association of GeoChemistry (IAGC), formerly known as the International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry, is affiliated with the International Union of Geological Sciences and has been one of the pre-eminent international geochemical organizations for over forty years. The principal objective of the IAGC is to foster cooperation in, and advancement of, geochemistry in the broadest sense. This objective is achieved using the following approaches:

  • The IAGC Works with interested groups in planning symposia and other types of meetings related to geochemistry.
  • The IAGC sponsors publications in geochemistry of a type not normally covered by existing organizations.
  • The IAGC sponsors working groups studying problems that require or benefit from international cooperation.

The primary scientific activities of the IAGC take place through its working groups (many of which conduct regular symposia) and the official journal of the association, Applied Geochemistry.

To become a member of the IAGC, please visit our Membership Section.

The IAGC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and donations to the Society are tax-deductible in the U.S. (EIN: 48-0943367)
