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: The geologists, miners, and geochemists of ancient West African merchant empires
Mansa Musa, the celebrated Sultan of the 14th century West African merchant empire of Mali (Figure 1), ruled for 25 years, from 1312 to 1337 AD. His prosperous and philanthropic reign has puzzled historians to this day, with word out that he is perhaps the richest man who ever lived (Green, 2019). Read more
On the EAG Blog: Fieldwork on the Revillagigedo Islands: the challenge and bliss of a geochemical field campaign in a remote uninhabited Mexican UNESCO National Park
Geochemistry inherently involves significant laboratory work, but a project often starts in the field to collect the target geological samples. The various aspects of geochemical research, and the field work specifically, make it the best job in the world I think. However, organization and planning… Read more
On the EAG Blog: Academia–Industry Transitions, Q&A with Ye Zhao
Many geochemists have transitioned from academia to industry, or vice-versa, during their careers. The EAG Communications Committee recently interviewed geochemists who made the move, to find out how they made the transition and to ask their advice for others in the community who may be considering a similar change. Here, we hear from Ye Zhao, a Senior Product Specialist and Business Development Manager at Nu Instruments, Ametek Inc. Read more
EAG Co-Sponsored Event: 8th International Clumped Isotope Workshop – Registration deadline 5 August
The 8th International Clumped Isotope Workshop, co-sponsored by the EAG, will take place 19-21 September 2022 at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Delegates meet every ~1.5 years at the ICIW to discuss methodological development and inter-laboratory standardization, learn about exciting new applications, and share ideas. The workshops are structured around several sessions of lectures and posters, with a large portion of the time being devoted to formal and informal discussion.
Abstract submission has now closed but registration is open until 5 August and financial assistance will be available to selected students. Read more

Diversity of chondritic organic matter probed by ultra-high resolution mass spectrometry
B. Laurent, J. Maillard, C. Afonso, G. Danger, P. Giusti, L. Remusat
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
