Latest Geochemical Perspectives: Sulfur Biogeochemical Cycle of Marine Sediments

Global Geochemistry Community Survey

We have an urgent need to better understand the international geochemical community and to advocate for reforms that will shape the future of our discipline. To build knowledge and enhance prospects for all geochemists, we ask you to help by participating in the Global Geochemistry Community Survey. The survey is completely anonymous and takes up to 15-20 minutes of your time.

To help us achieve the highest possible participation, please also share access to this survey among your geochemistry colleagues within and outside academia. Geochemists who are not members of the European Association of Geochemistry and/or Geochemical Society are invited to contribute too. Access the survey

Call for Student Representatives of the EAG DEI Committee

The EAG Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee are searching for two active Student Representatives to join our friendly and passionate committee. You can find out more about our work here

All postgraduate students working in the field of geochemistry at the time of application are eligible to apply, and we encourage applications from people in nations not currently represented among EAG DEI Committee members. Student Representatives will serve 1-year to 3-year terms on the committee, with the option to leave the committee at any time in the intervening period. Application deadline: 15 February. Read more

On the EAG Blog! Rock archive: How rocks can tell us about the Earth’s past

The main tool in reconstructing Earth’s environmental history is – rocks! In order to explore the ‘rock archive,’ we must first understand what kind of stories different types of rocks can tell us! Read more

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.
