F. Earl Ingerson Lecture

The F. Earl Ingerson Lecture Series honors the Geochemical Society's first president. The recipient is selected annually by the GS Board of Directors, from a list of nominees provided by the Program Committee including suggestions from the community.

The 2018 Ingerson Lecture will be presented at the Goldschmidt Conference in Boston (August 12-17). The honoree will receive waived abstract and registration fees for the conference.

The GS is currently seeking nominations from the global geochemical community for the 2018 lecture. Nominations are open for any topic within geochemistry with broad appeal to Goldschmidt attendees.

Nomination requirements: Please send the full name and contact details for the nominee and nominator, a short CV for the nominee, and a letter of support from the nominator explaining the rationale for the nomination to: awards@geochemsoc.org.

Nominations deadline: January 15, 2018
