Goldschmidt2023: Call for Sessions and Workshops open until 14 October
The Calls for Session and Workshop Proposals are now open and the submission deadline is 14 October 2022 (23:59 CET).
The European Association of Geochemistry and the Geochemical Society invite the entire geochemical community to shape another exciting science program by submitting suggestions for sessions advancing geochemistry and related disciplines.
Goldschmidt2023 will be once again organized as a hybrid meeting, welcoming delegates in Lyon and online, on 9-14 July. Find out more
Nominations for 2023 Awards now open
Recognizing deserving scientists is at the core of EAG’s mission. There are many discussions around the diversity of awardees, but as highlighted by Derek Vance, EAG President, in the blog post “EAG needs you to nominate a colleague for an award today!”, the key issue is the lack of nominations.
The EAG Award Nomination Committee is currently working hard to identify potential candidates and nominators, but we need the help of all the community to create a diverse pool of candidates. Find out more
Nomination deadline for Fellows: 31 October
Nomination deadline for Urey, Science Innovation and Houtermans Awards: 15 November
EAG Annual General Assembly on Wednesday 5 October
The EAG Annual General Meeting will be held on Zoom on Wednesday 5 October at 16:00 CET (Paris) / 15:00 London / 10:00 New York / 07:00 Los Angeles / 22:00 Beijing. This is an opportunity to find out more about EAG, Goldschmidt conferences and more, and ask any questions you may have.
On 15 September, EAG Members received an invitation to register for the AGM. If you haven’t received yours, contact us.
Outreach Program in Africa
After two years of interruption due to the pandemic, the EAG-GS Outreach Program is back and we are very excited to announce that Sebastian Doetterl, a physical geographer with a special focus on soil development, will be visiting 4 institutions in Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda this November.
This program is entirely funded by EAG and GS to promote geochemistry in under-represented regions of the world. Read more
New GS-EAG Virtual Mentoring Program
Geochemists, depending on their location, may have limited access to the resources, opportunities, or expertise necessary to fulfill their professional goals.
This program aims to connect these professionals with mentors across the globe who can assist, guide, and provide insights to aid in achieving these goals. For a start, the program will focus on three activities and will be dedicated to geochemists from low-income or lower middle-income countries as defined by the World Bank.

On the EAG Blog: Microbiobial Ecology at ISME18: an EAG Sponsored Student Reports Back
I am a PhD student studying the affect of permafrost thaw on microorganisms in permafrost in Svalbard. Like many ecology studies, my work brings together many topics such as biology, geography, geology, and climate. This August I was excited to attend and present my work at a leading conference in the field of microbial ecology, ISME18… Read more
On the EAG Blog: Academia–Industry Transitions: Q & A with Hauke Vollstaedt
The EAG Communications Committee recently interviewed three geochemists who made the move from academia to industry to ask their advice for others in the community who may be considering a similar change. Here, we hear from Hauke Vollstaedt, Product Manager at Thermo Fisher Scientific… Read more

For the 10th anniversary of our publication Geochemical Perspectives, we are excited to publish a special issue presenting a 1944 update of Geobiologie by Lourens Baas Becking. This update was written in pencil over a seven week period while Baas Becking was incarcerated for attempting to escape Nazi-occupied Netherlands.
Lourens Baas Becking was a pioneering microbial ecologist. He coined the term “Geobiology” and was profoundly interested in organisms occupying extremes of temperature and salinity. He is perhaps best remembered for his proposition that “Everything is everywhere, but the environment selects”.
This volume, with its extensive detailed footnotes, brings us into the mind of one of the most important microbial ecologists of the 20th century. This issue also provides the most complete biography of Baas Becking and his fascinating life… READ MORE
Stable isotopes are formidable tracers of physicochemical processes at all scales. Steady advances in mass spectrometry have allowed isotopic inquiries to move from the so-called “traditional” systems (i.e., H, C, N, O, and S) to heavier “nontraditional” systems (e.g., Fe, Mo, Ti, Zr, U) whose diverse geochemical characteristics are providing novel and complementary insights. Moving from micron-size systems (single crystals) to planetary-size bodies, the articles in this issue explore the enormous range of temporal and physical scales over which heavy stable isotopes have provided paradigm-shifting insights into the evolution of our planet and solar system. Also highlighted are new frontiers where novel stable isotope systematics appear particularly promising for unraveling long-standing questions. READ MORE
