Goldschmidt2020: Call for Sessions and Workshops

GS-2020-Logo-100The Goldschmidt Conference is the joint annual meeting of the GS and EAG, and we are very excited to welcome the international geochemistry community to Honolulu, Hawai’i, USA in 2020. The success of Goldschmidt is a result of the excellent science that is presented there each year. We invite you to submit a session or workshop proposal and help continue this tradition. Suggestions are due by 18 October 2019.

2020 Award Nominations open

3 medals_2020Recognition of scientific excellence at all stages of one’s career is crucial. Should you know of any deserving colleagues, nominate them for an EAG Award, the Geochemistry Fellowship or the R. Berner Lecture. Information and instructions on how to submit a nomination are available here.

Deadline for GS/EAG Fellows nominations: 31 October
Deadline for EAG Award nominations: 15 November

Short-course and Conference Sponsorship: Apply by 1 November

EAG_logo_100If you are an EAG member and are organising a short course or small conference in Europe on a special topic or technique in geochemistry, you can apply for EAG sponsorship to support student participation. The event should have at least 10 participants and can be organised in conjunction with a Goldschmidt conference in Europe. For 2020 events, please apply by 1 November 2019.

GPL1922_abstractMercury reallocation in thawing subarctic peatlands
M.F. Fahnestock, J.G. Bryce, C.K. McCalley, M. Montesdeoca, S. Bai, Y. Li, C.T. Driscoll, P.M. Crill, V.I. Rich, R.K. Varner

Warming Arctic temperatures have led to permafrost thaw that threatens to release previously sequestered mercury (Hg) back into the environment. Mobilisation of Hg in permafrost waters is of concern, as Hg methylation produced under water-saturated conditions results in the neurotoxin, methyl Hg (MeHg). Thawing permafrost […]

Figure 3A secretive mechanical exchange between mantle and crustal volatiles revealed by helium isotopes in 13C-depleted diamonds
S. Mikhail, J.C. Crosby, F.M. Stuart, L. DiNicola, F.A.J. Abernethy

Fluid inclusions trapped in fast-growing diamonds provide a unique opportunity to examine the origin of diamonds, and the conditions under which they formed. Eclogitic to websteritic diamondites from southern Africa show 13C-depletion and 15N-enrichment relative to mantle values […]

Evidence for anorthositic crust formed on an inner solar system planetesimal
P. Frossard, M. Boyet, A. Bouvier, T. Hammouda, J. Monteux

During the first million years of solar system history, planetesimals experienced extensive melting powered by the radioactive decay of 26Al (Lee et al., 1977). To date, the only known anorthositic crust on a solar system body is that of the Moon, formed by plagioclase flotation on top of the magma ocean […]


GPv8n2_184My Stable Isotope Journey in Biogeochemistry, Geoecology, and Astrobiology
Marilyn L. Fogel

Marilyn Fogel’s Geochemical Perspectives describes her career in stable isotope biogeochemistry and ecology and how she has studied carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and oxygen isotopes as tracers for chemical and biological processes. She’s studied both modern, fossil, and astrobiological materials to understand how biogeochemical cycles have changed over time, in particular how humans might be shaping ecosystems around the globe.
