Goldschmidt2017 will be held in the beautiful city of Paris, 13-18 August, and we certainly hope to see many of you there!
The theme leaders have now identified 23 themes and the whole geochemistry community is invited to submit suggestions for sessions before 1 November. Please note that any suggested sessions must be broad enough to attract at least 25 abstract submissions.
If you are interested in organising a pre-conference workshop or Town Hall meeting, you are also invited to submit a proposal before 1 November. Find out more.
The Goldschmidt2016 conference, which welcomed 3740 delegates, was a great success and the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry would like to thank all involved in the preparation of the event as well as all attendees.
If you haven’t done so yet, please share your feedback about what went well and what can be improved through the delegate survey.
You can now view the photos of the conference as well as the videos of the plenary lectures by Satoshi Utsunomiya, Terry Plank, Liane G. Benning and Shogo Tachibana.
We are very excited to announce the 2015 Impact Factor of 8.8 for the EAG publication Geochemical Perspectives, started only four years ago. Geochemical Perspectives and its short letter format Geochemical Perspectives Letters (see below) are open access journals created by and for the geochemical community. Each Geochemical Perspectives issue presents a single article combining research and history of a field’s development and the scientist’s opinions about future directions. We are enormously grateful to all the authors, editors and editorial staff for their hard work, resulting in today’s achievement.
Earth’s long-term carbon cycle, which is regulated by subduction and volcanism, is critical for understanding Earth’s structure, dynamics, and climate change. However, the mechanisms for carbon mobility in subduction zones remain largely unresolved. […]
The statistical mechanical basis of the triple isotope fractionation relationship
J.A. Hayles, X. Cao, H. Bao
Multiple stable isotope relationships have found a growing variety of uses in geochemistry and cosmochemistry. Approximations to the statistical-mechanical models for predicting isotope effects have led to the notion that mass fractionation laws are constrained to a “canonical” range of possible values. […]
Siderophile Elements in Tracing Planetary Formation and Evolution
Richard J. Walker (University of Maryland)
In this issue, the author examines and provides his own perspective of the history of the application and current state of our understanding of siderophile elements in cosmochemistry and high temperature geochemistry.
