Robert Wilhelm Bunsen Medal Lecture by William F. McDonough
Convener: N. T. Arndt 
Oral Programme
 / Wed, 25 Apr, 11:00–12:00  / Room 31

The Bunsen medal is awarded to William F. McDonough for his outstanding contribution to our understanding of the geochemical composition and evolution of the solid Earth. His ground-breaking research in defining the major and trace element composition of primitive mantle and of modern mantle reservoirs has become a cornerstone of geochemical investigation of the Earth’s interior and will form the basis for further investigations by generations of geochemists.
