GPL1714_abstract_100Repulsion between calcite crystals and grain detachment during water–rock interaction
Y. Levenson, S. Emmanuel

Weathering in carbonate rocks is often thought to be governed by chemical dissolution. However, recent studies have shown that mechanical detachment of tiny grains contributes significantly to the overall surface retreat. Whether this detachment is caused by shear forces acting at the surface, or repulsive forces acting between grains, was not known. […]

Graph abstEvidence of sub-arc mantle oxidation by sulphur and carbon
A. Rielli, A.G. Tomkins, O. Nebel, J. Brugger, B. Etschmann, R. Zhong, G.M. Yaxley, D. Paterson

The oxygen fugacity (ƒO2) of the Earth’s mantle at subduction zones exerts a primary control on the genesis of mineral deposits in the overlying magmatic arcs and on speciation of volcanic gases emitted into the atmosphere. However, the processes governing mantle ƒO2 such as the introduction of oxidised material by subduction are still unresolved. […]


gpv5n2_cover_100x100Thoughts and Reminiscences on Experimental Trace Element Partitioning
John H. Jones (NASA Johnson Space Center)

In this issue, John Jones reviews the history of experimental trace element partitioning from his personal point of view. In so doing, he considers experimental and analytical complexities, simple phase equilibria, and thermodynamic considerations. Jones also recounts personal interactions with other geochemists and petrologists.
