The Geochemical Society is pleased to announce three special lectures to be given at the 2021 Goldschmidt Conference. The Earl Ingerson Lecture will be delivered by Gabriel Filippelli of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis. He is recognized for significant advances in a range of areas that span fundamental basic research into the nature and dynamics of the global phosphorus cycle as well as practical, applied research into human exposure to environmental contaminants.

The Endowed Biogeochemistry Lecture will be given by Andreas Kappler of Eberhard-Karls-University Tuebingen. The selection honors his research around iron photo-oxidation processes, electron shuttling processes in redox cycling between microbes and iron oxide minerals, and biotic and abiotic components of iron cycling in modern and ancient settings.

The Robert Berner Lecture (a joint award with EAG) will be presented by Alexandra (Sasha) Turchyn of the University of Cambridge. She has made important contributions in the area of global geochemical cycles especially related to the modern and ancient sulphur cycles, using novel analytical techniques combined with mathematical models.
