Administrative history

The Organic Geochemistry Division (OGD) is a semi-autonomous segment of the larger Geochemical Society. The OGD was officially recognized as an integral part of the Geochemical Society in November 1960, although steps to formalize the group began in November 1959. The OGD was formed to create a common forum for researchers in soil geochemistry, oceanography, petroleum geochemistry, coal geochemistry, microbiology and other related fields. A Chair and a Division Secretary oversee the functions of the division and assist in the organization of the annual Gordon Research Conference. The OGD annually recognizes outstanding scholarly work with the Best Paper Award (student and professional) and the Alfred E. Trebis Award for major achievements in organic geochemistry.
