Latest Geochemical Perspectives: Origins and Early Evolution of the Atmosphere and the Oceans

Goldschmidt2021 becomes a fully virtual meeting

In the video below, Derek Vance, President of the European Association of Geochemistry, provides explanations about the new conference format. Read more details here.

EAG Forum: EAG members share experiences and tips about online teaching and fieldwork in COVID times

The COVID-19 pandemic has posed several challenges to higher education and institutions had to move online teaching. However, online teaching brings a number of new challenges!

On the EAG Forum, some EAG members are sharing their tips and experiences about online teaching and fieldwork in COVID times – see section ‘Undergraduate Teaching’.

Log in to the EAG Membership platform now to visit the forum, share your experience, ask a question, or subscribe to receive topic updates.

Free and Discounted Student Access to Goldschmidt2021 Online

While the deadline has passed for the regular Grant Program, the EAG and GS are still offering free or reduced registration for students and certain early career scientists for online participation. The virtual part of the conference is a great opportunity for students to learn about the latest discoveries and engage with scientists from around the world.

If you meet the eligibility criteria, you can apply for waived registration. If you are not eligible, then registration is only €75 for student members of either society. Read more

5 good reasons to join EAG or renew your membership!

1. Reduced registration fees at Goldschmidt conferences (see Goldschmidt2021 registration fees) and other events by EAG partners
2. Subscription to Elements and Geochemical Perspectives
3. NEW! Access to a networking platform allowing you to connect with other EAG members, including through a dedicated forum
4. Possibility to apply for sponsorship to attend (or organize) short courses and conferences

Latest Geochemical Perspectives: ‘Origins and Early Evolution of the Atmosphere and the Oceans’

In this issue, Bernard Marty explores the origin and fate of volatile elements, i.e. those which form the atmosphere and the oceans and permitted the development of life on our planet. From the analysis of volcanic rocks, ancient atmospheric gases, and meteorites, we learn that the Earth is depleted in volatile elements when compared to its potential cosmochemical ancestors and that natural fluxes of carbon are two orders of magnitude lower than those emitted by current anthropogenic activity. Further insights have come from space missions that document the composition of the proto-solar nebula and the outer solar system. READ MORE

Latest Elements: ‘Hydrothermal Fluids’

Fluids are the principle agents of heat and mass transfer in the Earth. This thematic issue will explore the physical and chemical properties of hydrothermal fluids and how they affect geologic processes. The issue will discuss our current understanding of the nature of hydrothermal fluids across a range of geologic settings; interactions between fluids and rocks; and the interrelationships between fluid-driven processes in different settings. Each article will highlight both broad and specific overlaps between “normal” and ore-forming hydrothermal fluids and will describe how the features of hydrothermal systems reflect the specific properties of the fluids in each setting.
