2013 Geochemistry Medal Award


The 2013 Geochemistry Division Medal was awarded to Dr. George W. Luther III, Professor of Oceanography, University of Delaware, for his wide-ranging fundamental contributions to aqueous geochemistry.  These contributions include application of physical inorganic chemistry to understanding electron transfer in natural waters; development of chemical sensors and the application of voltammetry to quantifying trace element speciation in natural waters; and elucidation of chemical and microbial processes in metal and sulfur cycling. After the presentation of the award, Dr. Luther’s contributions were celebrated with a series of invited lectures highlighting critical issues in aqueous biogeochemistry.


The ACS Geochemistry Division Medal was awarded at a special Geochemistry Division awards symposium, which was held at the ACS National Meeting in New Orleans, LA: 7-11 April 2013.
