Goldschmidt2023: Call for bloggers

Whether you are a first-time attendee or a more experienced conference-goer, if you have a passion for communication and are interested in sharing some of your experiences at Goldschmidt2023 with the community, we'd love to have you on board. A free banquet ticket will be offered to each of our bloggers. Contact the EAG Office to find out more.

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.

New Editors at Geochemical Perspectives Letters

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.
