William S. and Carelyn Y. Reeburgh Lecture

Basic Information

AGU has been William S. Reeburgh’s primary professional affiliation since 1968.  Reeburgh was active in the OS and AS sections until the B section was formed.  He served as editor of Global Biogeochemical Cycles for 6 years (1998-2004), and was President-Elect and President of the Biogeosciences section (7/04-7/08).  He is an AGU Fellow (2001). The inaugural lecture was presented at the 2015 AGU Fall Meeting in San Francisco, California. 

The Reeburgh Lecture will be presented annually as part of the AGU Fall Meeting. In even numbered years the lecture will be presented as part of AGU’s Ocean Sciences Section’s programming and will concentrate on the topic of marine geochemistry. The lecturer will be invited to attend the Ocean Sciences Section Reception and the fund will act as a sponsor of the event.

In odd numbered years the lecture will be presented as part of AGU’s Biogeosciences Section’s programming and will concentrate on the topic of global biogeochemistry. The lecturer will be invited to attend the Biogeosciences Section reception and the Fund will act as a sponsor of the event.
