Gao Shan (Chinese: 高山; pinyin: Gāo Shān; June 30, 1962 – May 3, 2016) was a Chinese geochemist and academician of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS). He was a professor of geochemistry at the China University of Geosciences (Wuhan).

Biography[edit]

Gao obtained a bachelor's degree of geology from Northwest University (China) in 1982.[1] He was enrolled to China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) in 1985 when he obtained a master's degree. He received his PhD from China University of Geosciences in 1989. Following this, he was an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation post-doctoral scientist at the Geochemisches institute, University of Göttingen, before he returned to China to take up a faculty position at China University of Geosciences. His interests included chemical composition of the continental crust, chemical exchange between the crust and the mantle, and laser ablation ICP-MS and its applications to in-situ elemental and isotopic analysis of minerals. He published authoritative articles on the chemical composition of the continental crust [2][3] and contributed to unravelling the history of decratonization in the North China Craton.[4][5]

Gao was elected as a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in December 2011.[6] He was also a fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry (2009), Geochemical Society (2014) and European Association of Geochemistry (2014).[7]

Gao died in Wuhan on May 3, 2016.[8]
