Goldschmidt2023 Press Team: call for volunteers
During every Goldschmidt conference, a number of press releases publicising advances made in geochemistry and presented at the conference are issued. This outreach initiative is the result of the work of the Goldschmidt Press Officer and the Press Team. We are currently looking for volunteers to join the 2023 Press Team to help with the selection of newsworthy abstracts and provide guidance and contacts. For any questions or if interested, please contact the EAG Office.
Goldschmidt2024 and 2025: Dates and locations announced
The European Association of Geochemistry and the Geochemical Society are pleased to confirm the dates and locations for Goldschmidt2024 and 2025. Mark the dates in your calendars today!
2024 Goldschmidt Conference 18–25 August 2024 | Chicago, Illinois, USA
2025 Goldschmidt Conference 6–11 July 2025 | Prague, Czech Republic
The European Association of Geochemistry and the Geochemical Society are delighted to announce the names of the 2023 Geochemistry Fellows: Alessandro Aiuppa, Karim Benzerara, Antje Boetius, Maud Boyet, Elizabeth Cottrell, Andrew M. Davis, Hailiang Dong, Danielle Fortin, Penny L. King, Thorsten Kleine, Daniel Ochieng Olago, Clive Oppenheimer, Clare E. Reimers, Rosalind E.M. Rickaby, Myrna J. Simpson, Neil Colrick Sturchio, and Shucheng Xie.
We are very pleased to welcome Raúl Fonseca (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) and Romain Tartèse (University of Manchester, UK) to the Geochemical Perspectives Letters editorial board.
Raúl Fonseca (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany) combines tools from experimental petrology and isotope and trace element geochemistry to understand high-temperature processes operating at both the planetary and crust/mantle scales. His current research focuses on investigating B and Ti isotope fractionation in experimental and natural samples to understand processes such as subduction initiation in the Archean, as well as the identification of magmatic degassing in arc magmas prior to their eruption.
Romain Tartèse (University of Manchester, UK) uses microbeam techniques to investigate a range of Earth and planetary science questions, such as the volatile inventory of small planetary bodies (e.g., the Moon, asteroids), the differentiation of planetary crusts, and the preservation of the earliest traces of terrestrial life.
We also take this opportunity to thank departing editor Maud Boyet for her hard work and significant contribution to the journal during her time serving on the board.

An isotopically light nitrogen reservoir in the ocean: evidence from ferromanganese crusts
Ferromanganese (FeMn) oxide crusts and nodules in the deep ocean have been studied extensively in the context of critical metals and metal isotope mass balances; however, their role in the marine nitrogen cycle...
Interaction between clay minerals and organics in asteroid Ryugu
The Hayabusa 2 spacecraft brought back to Earth grains of the carbonaceous asteroid Ryugu. Such grains represent the pristine state of CI chondritic materials and have been preserved from exposure to Earth’s atmosphere. Here, we show....
Planetary accretion and core formation inferred from Ni isotopes in enstatite meteorites
Nickel is a siderophile and near-refractory element, making its isotopes a potential tool for tracing planetary accretion and differentiation. However, the origin of the Ni stable isotope difference between bulk...
Geochemical evolution of melt/peridotite interaction at high pressure in subduction zones
The Borgo outcrop of the Monte Duria Area (Adula-Cima Lunga unit, Central Alps, Italy) is an excellent example of melt-peridotite interaction which occurred under a deformation regime at high pressure...
Gas monitoring at volcanic fields outside Naples exposes multiple sources of carbon dioxide emissions
[phys.org] The Phlegraean volcanic fields just west of Naples, Italy, are among the top eight emitters of volcanic carbon dioxide in the world. Since 2005, the Solfatara crater—one of many circular depressions in the landscape left by a long...
[earth.com] Wildfires are known to pump smoke up into the stratosphere, where the particles can drift for more than a year. By focusing on the “Black Summer” megafire that devastated eastern Australia from December 2019 to...

Mysteries of the Earth: How Fast Did Ancient Magma Ocean Solidify?
[European.times] During the early stages of Earth’s formation, a massive ocean of molten rock known as a “magma ocean” blanketed the planet’s surface and penetrated deep into its core. The cooling rate of this “magma ocean” played a...
Evidence that deep-sea black carbon comes from hydrothermal vents
[phys.org] Hydrothermal vents have been identified as a previously undiscovered source of dissolved black carbon in the oceans, furthering our understanding of the role of oceans as a carbon sink. The ocean is one of the largest...
