Biogeochemistry: The great iron dump
Nature (paid subscription required)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The discovery that marine algal blooms deposit organic carbon to the deep ocean answers some — but not all — of the questions about whether fertilizing such blooms is a viable strategy for mitigating climate change. More

Goldschmidt2013 — Call for Sessions
   Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Goldschmidt2013 will be hosted by EAG in the magnificent Firenze Fiera Congress Center in Florence, on Aug. 25-30, 2013. The organizing committee has identified 24 theme areas, and a range of sessions have been proposed for each theme. Please take a look at the list of themes and sessions and discuss with your colleagues whether there are any obvious gaps in the program. If so please suggest sessions that you think would help make the program more comprehensive. In particular we welcome submissions to the new 'Union' theme (theme 01) which is designed to provide a home for exciting geochemistry that is both high profile and cuts across established themes. The additional sessions submitted will be reviewed by the science committee, and included in the list of sessions where appropriate. If you have any questions about suitability or overlap of your proposed session with existing sessions, please contact the appropriate theme leaders.

Solid-liquid iron partitioning in Earth's deep mantle
Nature    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Melting processes in the deep mantle have important implications for the origin of the deep-derived plumes believed to feed hotspot volcanoes such as those in Hawaii. They also provide insight into how the mantle has evolved, geochemically and dynamically, since the formation of Earth. More

Bottom line: Ocean floor sediments may be window on world's warmer future
Scientific American    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Digging into our planet's past could help us prepare for a hot future. One dramatic spike in historical temperatures, the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM), occurred around 55.9 million years ago. More

Rapid variability of seawater chemistry over the past 130 million years
Science (paid subscription required)    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Fluid inclusion data suggest that the composition of major elements in seawater changes slowly over geological time scales. This view contrasts with high-resolution isotope data that imply more rapid fluctuations of seawater chemistry. MORE
