News from the EAG
[By Chris Pearce] In my previous post, ‘A geochemistry ditty’, I penned what is possibly the geekiest poem you will ever come across. I was therefore pleasantly surprised when several people got in touch to say how much they appreciated my artistic license, as they could associate with much of what I’ve been through. This got me thinking… Read more
The EAG is excited to present you its latest issue of Geochemical Perspectives, “The Marine Carbon System and Ocean Acidification during Phanerozoic Time“, written by Fred Mackenzie and Andreas Andersson. This superbly illustrated issue deals with the global CO2-carbonic acid-carbonate system over Phanerozoic time, including natural Icehouse-Hothouse variations and the consequences of anthropogenic ocean acidification. Printed copies have been mailed to subscribers.
The EAG is proud to announce Pr. Thomas Röckmann (Utrecht University) as the Distinguished Lecturer 2013. Thomas is a leading specialist in the development and application of isotope techniques to atmospheric research. Institutions located in Eastern and Central Europe are encouraged to review the lecture abstracts and, if interested, send a request to the EAG Office before 25 May to invite Thomas Röckmann to come and present a lecture (the lecture tour will take place in the fall of 2013).

I was trained as a metamorphic petrologist at the University of Kiel in Germany and as a petrologist/mineralogist at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland. In my undergraduate thesis I studied ‘proper ROCKS!’… Read more
[By Elizabeth Swanner] The idea was simple: combine a bicycle-touring vacation with alternative transportation to a conference. The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly took place in Vienna, Austria this year from April 7-12. The beautiful blue Danube River starts in the Black Forest, which is near our current home… Read more
[By Andy Bray] Having just got back from a field class, I’m at a loss of what do. The rush of returning to the office on Friday afternoon to crack out a Goldschmidt abstract, combined with the fatigue acquired from a week teaching outdoors has led to a slow start to this Saturday. While I’m waiting for the post field trip clothes wash… Read more
The EAG would like to thank everyone who submitted an abstract for Goldschmidt2013. Over 4000 abstracts were received making Goldschmidt2013 the biggest geochemical conference ever. We’d also like to remind you that registering before 25 June allows you to benefit from lower registration fees.
