Geochemical Perspectives Letters receives its first impact factor

GPL_logo_120The Web of Science Group has just published its 2019 Journal Citation Reports and we are delighted to announce that Geochemical Perspectives Letters (GPL), the European Association of Geochemistry’s fully open-access community-led letters journal, has received an impact factor of 4.03, which puts GPL amongst the top journals in geochemistry.

The editors and editorial office thank all the authors, reviewers and readers who have contributed to GPL‘s growing success and recognition.

GPL1918_abstractGraphite floatation on a magma ocean and the fate of carbon during core formation
H. Keppler, G. Golabek

Carbon is a strongly siderophile element and current models assume that in a magma ocean, most of the carbon is sequestered into the core. Here we show that (i) for an initially highly reduced magma ocean, most of the carbon will be reduced to graphite, which is less dense than a peridotite melt; (ii) the graphite can be […]

GPL1917_abstract_100182W evidence for core-mantle interaction in the source of mantle plumes
H. Rizo, D. Andrault, N.R. Bennett, M. Humayun, A. Brandon, I. Vlastelic, B. Moine, A. Poirier, M.A. Bouhifd, D.T. Murphy

Tungsten isotopes are the ideal tracers of core-mantle chemical interaction. Given that W is moderately siderophile, it preferentially partitioned into the Earth’s core during its segregation, leaving the mantle depleted in this element. […]

未命名 -1Fluid discharge linked to bending of the incoming plate at the Mariana subduction zone
M. Du, X. Peng, W.E. Seyfried Jr., K. Ta, Z. Guo, S. Chen, I.-M. Chou, J. Li, H. Xu

Tectonically induced bending of incoming plates at subduction zones can result in normal faulting in the upper ocean crust. Seismic surveys and numerical models indicate enhanced permeability and fluid circulation when this occurs. Yet, direct geological evidence of such effects on the seafloor is lacking. Here we report […]


v8n1_cover_184Big Picture Geochemistry from Microanalyses – My Four-Decade Odyssey in SIMS
Nobumichi Shimizu

In this new Geochemical Perspectives, Nobumichi Shimizu recounts his personal story of how the ion microprobe became a powerful tool in geochemistry and how in situ trace element and isotope analysis techniques have been used in various ways in solid earth geochemistry. This is also the story of how micro-scale observations changed, and continue to change, our views on large-scale natural phenomena.
