Goldschmidt2019: Grant Program

grantsThe Goldschmidt Grant Program aims to make the Conference as accessible as possible by providing waived registration fees and travel support for early career delegates whose institution is located in a country designated by the World Bank as “low-income” or “lower-middle-income” economy. Additionally, for US-based students and postdocs, grants are available through support from US funding agencies.

Visit the Grants page for more information. Application deadline: 15 March.

EAG-GS Outreach Program: Hasnaa Chennaoui Aoudjehane in Mauritania

Hasnaa_1002019 EAG-GS Outreach Program to Africa lecturer, Hasnaa Chennaoui Aoudjehane (University Hassan II of Casablanca), a scientist in the fields of Meteoritics, Planetary Sciences and Geochemistry, will start this year’s tour in Mauritania on 28 January, where she will give a seminar and workshop on Morocco and Mauritania meteorites at the University of Nouakchott.

Student Sponsorship program – next deadline: 1 February

The EAG Student Sponsorship Program sponsors 12 students each year, up to 500 Euros per student, to attend geochemistry-related short courses, summer schools, workshops or conferences located in Europe (except for the Goldschmidt conference). The next application deadline is 1 February 2019. More information

GPL1901_abstract_100The primordial He budget of the Earth set by percolative core formation in planetesimals
A.S.G. Roth, C. Liebske, C. Maden, K.W. Burton, M. Schönbächler, H. Busemann

The primordial He budget of the Earth’s interior is commonly thought to have been set by full liquid metal-silicate equilibration in a terrestrial magma ocean. However, incomplete metal-silicate equilibration during accretion will have a substantial effect on this budget. Here we present liquid-solid partitioning experiments indicating that He behaves as a moderately siderophile element during percolative core formation in planetesimals. […]

GPL1833_abstract_100Onset of volatile recycling into the mantle determined by xenon anomalies
S. Péron, M. Moreira

Noble gases serve as unique tracers of the origin and evolution of Earth’s volatile reservoirs owing to their inert nature and contribution from extinct and extant radioactivities. However, noble gases are low in abundance relative to many other elements, particularly in the Earth’s mantle. […]

GPL1832_abstract_100Goethite, a tailor-made host for the critical metal scandium: The FexSc(1-x)OOH solid solution
C. Levard, D. Borschneck, O. Grauby, J. Rose, J.-P. Ambrosi

Scandium is the subject of increasing interest and is even becoming critical for a number of institutions in Europe and the U.S.A. among others because of its economic value and supply risk. Despite this growing awareness, little is known about its geochemical behaviour. […]


GPv7n2_cover_100CO2: Earth’s Climate Driver
Wally Broecker

In this new Geochemical Perspectives, Wally recounts the evolution of climate over Earth’s history in six brief episodes, from the early Earth and conditions on our planet under the faint young sun, through the current global warming challenge stemming from the burning of fossil fuels. Along the way Wally reviews some of the major evidence and enigmas of the geologic record and how these have revealed not only the climate of the past, but which processes were critical for this evolution. Through it all, Wally is careful to point out what we feel we now know, as well as research directions that might be most fruitful in the future. Written in a concise and easy to follow text, this should be an enlightening read for experts and novices alike.
