Goldschmidt conferences

From Wicri Earth

The idea of the Goldschmidt conferences appeared in 1983, when members of the Geological Society of America stated that geochemistry could never be better recognized as a disciplin, though it widely contributed to major discoveries in geological sciences, without identified events, such as an annual meeting specifically for geochemistry.

It required 5 years to evolve from a wish to a reality, and the first Goldschmidt conference was held in 1988 in Baltimore. The members of the committee in charge of organizing the event found it was a good idea to celebrate the upcoming centennial of Viktor Moritz Goldschmidt’s birth in 1888 : the Goldschmidt conferences were born[1].
