The Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry have awarded Professor Marie Edmonds with the title of Geochemistry Fellow.

In total sixteen geochemists were recognised this year. The award was established in 1996 to honour outstanding scientists who have, over the years, made a major contribution to the field. The awards will be presented at the society’s Goldschmidt Conference this summer.

Marie Edmonds, who is Ron Oxburgh Fellow in Earth Sciences at Queens College, said, “Receiving a Geochemistry Fellow is an enormous honour and I'm ever grateful for the support of the Department and Queens' College.”

Marie’s research focuses on how volcanoes shape the climate and planet through outgassing of volatiles like water and carbon dioxide. Specifically, her work has made important contributions to our understanding of the role these volatiles play in melting, magma genesis, eruption style and climate modulation.


About the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry

The Geochemical Society is a nonprofit scientific society founded in 1955 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.

The European Association of Geochemistry was officially established in 1985 with the goal of promoting geochemistry internationally and in particular providing a forum for the presentation of geochemistry, exchange of ideas, publications and recognition of scientific excellence.
