Geochemical Perspectives Letters in Web of Science

We are delighted to announce that Geochemical Perspectives Letters (GPL) has been accepted for inclusion in the Science Citation Index Expanded and is now indexed in Web of Science, the world’s oldest citation index and a highly valued resource for researchers. GPL’s impact factor is therefore expected in June 2019. The editorial board would like to thank all the readers, authors, reviewers and editors who have contributed towards the success of GPL since its launch in 2015.

2018 Distinguished Lecture Tour

JimMcquaid_100Dr. Jim McQuaid‘s 2018 Distinguished Lecture Tour of Central and Eastern Europe kicks off this month at Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. Over the following seven days, Jim will visit universities in Hungary and Romania, before making a final stop in Croatia in early December. Four lectures on the theme of atmospheric and climate science will be given to students and staff at the universities during the tour. Stay tuned for news!

PrintDecoupling of dissolved and bedrock neodymium isotopes during sedimentary cycling
R.S. Hindshaw, S.M. Aciego, A.M. Piotrowski, E.T. Tipper

The radiogenic neodymium isotope ratio 143Nd/144Nd (expressed as εNd) has been applied to examine seawater elemental budgets, sedimentary provenance, oceanic water mass source and circulation, large scale geochemical cycling, and continental crust growth rates. These applications are underpinned by the assumption that […]

GPL1827_abstract100Isotopic variation in Semail Ophiolite lower crust reveals crustal-level melt aggregation
M.N. Jansen, C.J. Lissenberg, M. Klaver, S.J. de Graaff, J.M. Koornneef, R.J. Smeets, C.J. MacLeod, G.R. Davies

The scale and magnitude of compositional heterogeneity in the mantle has important implications for the understanding of the evolution of Earth. Heterogeneity of the upper mantle is often evaluated based on mid-ocean ridge basalt compositions, despite their homogenisation prior to eruption. […]

GPL1826_abstract_100A stochastic sampling approach to zircon eruption age interpretation
C.B. Keller, B. Schoene, K.M. Samperton

The accessory mineral zircon is widely used to constrain the timing of igneous processes such as magma crystallisation or eruption. However, zircon U-Pb ages record zircon crystallisation, which is not an instantaneous process. Zircon saturation calculations […]


v7n1_cover_100Cosmochemistry along the Rhine
Herbert Palme

This Geochemical Perspectives contribution traces the development of German cosmochemistry from the excitement of work on Apollo sample returns to current debates in the formation of meteorites and their components. It illuminates the crucial role played by neutron activation techniques applied at the Max Planck Institute in constraining planetary compositions and evolution. This issue further charts a fascinating collection of interlinked cosmochemical projects while providing insight into the different research environments within the Max Planck and University systems.
