12 June is also the deadline to register for one of the amazing field trips.

Goldschmidt2018 is family friendly!

family_100If your family is accompanying you to Goldschmidt2018, the conference warmly welcomes them. New this year, child care is available for the children of delegates (reservations required to guarantee space). Learn more.

2018 Outreach Program to Africa: AFIPS Call for Workshops now open

AFIPS_150As part of the 2018 Outreach Program to Africa, the EAG and the Geochemical Society are co-sponsoring the Africa Initiative for Planetary and Space Sciences. As part of this initiative, two 4-day workshops, aimed at strengthening the African vision for developing Planetary and Space Sciences at the local, national, or regional scale, will be organised in 2018. Find out more.

The call for workshops is now open. Deadline for submission of proposals: 1 June 2018.

Distinguished Lecture Tour 2018

McQuaidDr. Jim McQuaid (University of Leeds) has been selected as the EAG 2018 Distinguished Lecturer. His research is primarily focused upon observations of the composition of both gas phase and aerosol species in the atmosphere, and an exciting series of lectures on these themes has been proposed for this year’s Lecture Tour.

If your institution is based in Central or Eastern Europe and you wish to invite Dr. McQuaid to present one or two lectures, please contact us. More details.

GPL1814_abstractToxic anthropogenic pollutants reach the deepest ocean on Earth
S. Dasgupta, X. Peng, S. Chen, J. Li, M. Du, Y.-H. Zhou, G. Zhong, H. Xu, K. Ta

Persistent organic pollutants (PCBs and PBDEs) were analysed in sediment core samples (0-2 cm) from the southern Mariana Trench at water depths of 7000-11000 m. ∑PCBs concentrations ranged from 931 to 4195 pg/g, far higher than those recorded before in marine sediments from shallower depths. […]

GPL1812_abstractGeochemistry and metallogeny of Neoproterozoic pyrite in oxic and anoxic sediments
J. Parnell, M. Perez, J. Armstrong, L. Bullock, J. Feldmann, A.J. Boyce

The Neoproterozoic Dalradian Supergroup contains widespread diagenetic sulphides present as pyrite. The sulphides occur in both carbonaceous shales and glacial diamictites, that were deposited in relatively reducing and oxidising conditions respectively. […]

GPL1813_abstractProperties of molten CaCO3 at high pressure
J. Hudspeth, C. Sanloup, Y. Kono

We report here the structure of molten CaCO3 studied by in situ X-ray diffraction using a Paris-Edinburgh press up to 8.7 GPa. Variations are observed in the medium range order with shrinkage of the intermolecular contributions, reflecting higher packing efficiency of the carbonate molecules. […]


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.
