About the Geochemical Society

Founded in 1955, the society was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1990.

Mission Statement

The Geochemical Society is a nonprofit scientific society founded to encourage the application of geochemistry to improving our understanding of the Earth and solar system.

Membership is international and diverse in background, encompassing such fields as organic geochemistry, high and low-temperature geochemistry, petrology, meteoritics, fluid-rock interaction, and isotope geochemistry.


Explore. Learn. Teach. We seek an active and collaborative international community of geochemists who are able to explore, learn, and teach geochemical applications and theories.
