Latest Geochemical Perspectives : ‘Sulfur Biogeochemical Cycle of Marine Sediments’

On the background of his own studies of the sulfur cycle over the past forty years, Bo Barker Jørgensen discusses important aspects of the microbiology and geochemistry of sulfur transformations in the seabed. Mixed with anecdotes, he reminisces how the field developed, with exciting discoveries and occasional failures. There is particular focus on experimental approaches and their use to understand sulfate reduction, sulfide oxidation, and disproportionation. Interactions with the methane cycle and with general mineralisation processes are described, and the information provided by stable sulfur isotopes is discussed. The final sections analyse global aspects and future perspectives of the sulfur cycle. READ MORE

Latest Elements: ‘Geosciences Beyond the Solar System’

A revolution in astronomical observation has expanded the horizon of geological processes out from the handful of rocky and icy bodies in our solar system to the now thousands of planets detected around other stars (“exoplanets”). A major result from this burgeoning field is that rocky planets are the most abundant. A remarkable ∼11% of Sun-like stars host planets similar in their size and incident flux to Earth, whilst many more planets may exist in states relevant to past periods of terrestrial evolution, either trapped as perpetual magma oceans or locked into a snowball climate. This issue will highlight the myriad opportunities exoplanets represent for investigating fundamental geological processes and the opportunities for the geosciences to contribute to this exciting young field.
