Goldschmidt2019: Call for Sessions and Workshops deadline is 1 November

Barcelona is the next destination of the Goldschmidt Conference and we warmly invite you to come and actively participate in the conference, starting with building a high quality science program.

The Call for Session and Workshop proposals is now open. Visit the Goldschmidt2019 website for more information and instructions on how to submit your proposals.

The deadline for both calls is 1 November 2018.

2019 Award Nominations

Recognition 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 and R. Berner Lecture nominations: 31 October
Deadline for EAG Award nominations: 15 November

Short Course and Conference Sponsorship Program: Apply by 1 November

sponsorshipIf you 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, up to 200€ per student. See here for more information and details of how to apply.

Application deadline for 2019 events: 1 November 2018.

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 link […]

GPL1825_abstract_100Plume-lithosphere interaction, and the formation of fibrous diamonds
M.W. Broadley, H. Kagi, R. Burgess, D. Zedgenizov, S. Mikhail, M. Almayrac, A. Ragozin, B. Pomazansky, H. Sumino

Fluid inclusions in diamond provide otherwise inaccessible information on the origin and nature of carbonaceous fluid(s) in the mantle. Here we evaluate the role of subducted volatiles in diamond formation within the Siberian cratonic lithosphere. […]

GPL1824_abstract_100Transition metal availability to speleothems controlled by organic binding ligands
A. Hartland, R. Zitoun

Speleothems are important archives of Quaternary palaeoclimate. However, climate proxies based on trace elements in speleothems are currently limited to the metals which exhibit simple partitioning (Mg2+, Sr2+, Ba2+). This study aims to expand understanding of the processes controlling the divalent first row transition metals (M2+) in these systems. […]


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.
