12 July is also the deadline to register for one of the 20 exciting workshops and book for one of the many social events.

Goldschmidt2018 is family friendly!

family_100If your family is accompanying you to Goldschmidt2018, the conference warmly welcomes them. New this year, child care is available for the children of delegates (reservations required to guarantee space). Learn more.

A little comic relief…

A new cartoon from the ‘Black & White?’ series, by our resident cartoonists R & B, is out now! This comic was also published in Elements June 2018 issue. Check out the full series here.

GPL1815_abstractMass-dependent triple oxygen isotope variations in terrestrial materials
Z.D. Sharp, J.A.G. Wostbrock, A. Pack

High precision triple oxygen isotope analyses of terrestrial materials show distinct fields and trends in Δ’17O – δ’18O space that can be explained by well understood fractionation processes. The Δ’17O – δ’18O field for meteoric waters has almost no overlap with that of rocks. […]

GPL1814_abstractToxic anthropogenic pollutants reach the deepest ocean on Earth
S. Dasgupta, X. Peng, S. Chen, J. Li, M. Du, Y.-H. Zhou, G. Zhong, H. Xu, K. Ta

Persistent organic pollutants (PCBs and PBDEs) were analysed in sediment core samples (0-2 cm) from the southern Mariana Trench at water depths of 7000-11000 m. ∑PCBs concentrations ranged from 931 to 4195 pg/g, far higher than those recorded before in marine sediments from shallower depths. […]

GPL1812_abstractGeochemistry and metallogeny of Neoproterozoic pyrite in oxic and anoxic sediments
J. Parnell, M. Perez, J. Armstrong, L. Bullock, J. Feldmann, A.J. Boyce

The Neoproterozoic Dalradian Supergroup contains widespread diagenetic sulphides present as pyrite. The sulphides occur in both carbonaceous shales and glacial diamictites, that were deposited in relatively reducing and oxidising conditions respectively. […]


v7n1_cover_100Cosmochemistry along the Rhine
Herbert Palme

This Geochemical Perspectives contribution traces the development of German cosmochemistry from the excitement of work on Apollo sample returns to current debates in the formation of meteorites and their components. It illuminates the crucial role played by neutron activation techniques applied at the Max Planck Institute in constraining planetary compositions and evolution. This issue further charts a fascinating collection of interlinked cosmochemical projects while providing insight into the different research environments within the Max Planck and University systems.
