In Memoriam: Robert Berner

Sad news today for the field of geology, Robert A. Berner, Emeritus Professor of Geology and Geophysics at Yale, has passed away. Bob was one of the the most influential geochemists of his time, and made seminal discoveries in quantitative geochemistry of sediments, the geochemistry of sulfides and carbonates in the oceans, diagenesis, weathering, and most notably, the field of geochemical cycling. He will be missed.
