International activities in geochemistry were once coordinated in association with the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics (IUGG). Now, however, this is the role of the International Association of Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry (IAGC), founded in 1967. In this second profile of IUGS affiliates, the background structure and program of this very dynamic Association is described by its current Secretary. (Ed.)
