Bernard Marty, Professor of Geochemistry at the Université de Lorraine and CRPG-CNRS (France), will receive the 2021 Victor M. Goldschmidt Award. The Goldschmidt Award recognizes major achievements in geochemistry or cosmochemistry consisting of either a single outstanding contribution or a series of publications that have had great influence on the field. Dr. Marty is recognized for work that transformed rare-gas geochemistry and its applications to mantle geodynamics, atmosphere and ocean history, and planetary formation. His work on planetary material, interplanetary dust, and comets changed the paradigm of nebular volatiles and has become the reference for the volatile content of planets.
