Division on Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology

President: Mike Burton (gmpv@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Andrea Di Muro (dimuro@ipgp.fr)

The Geochemistry-Mineralogy-Petrology-Volcanology division includes disciplines that are fundamental to, but not restricted to studies of the solid earth. Important themes include the nature, composition, structure of the Earth’s mantle; the composition, origin and evolution of the oceanic and continental crust; the formation and crystallization of magmas; the chemical compositions of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks; element transfer between the surface envelopes of the earth; volcanoes and volcanism. While most of these studies fall in the realm of fundamental research, studies of pollution in the surface or subsurface waters, the formation of ore deposits, and the environmental impact of volcanism are examples of more applied research.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

Happy holidays from the EGU office! This month we are happy to announce a new addition to the EGU awards and medals portfolio. The Katia and Maurice Krafft Award honours researchers who have shown exceptional efforts in geoscience communication and outreach. Submissions for this and other EGU 2020 awards and medals will be accepted from January until 15 June 2019.

This month we also announced that EGU is contributing EUR 132,000 to help fund over 20 training schools and conferences in 2019, including two Galileo Conferences. We have also launched a call for proposals for EGU members interested in organising Galileo Conferences from March 2020 to February 2021. Apply by 28 February 2019 to receive up to EUR 8000 in financial support, as well as significant organisational support, from the EGU.

Follow the links below for more news, including several updates and information regarding the EGU General Assembly. Remember, the deadline for abstracts is 10 January 13:00 CET. Before then, consider renewing your EGU membership to be part of the largest European geosciences union. EGU members are eligible to submit an abstract to the General Assembly and enjoy substantially reduced meeting registration rates, among other benefits.
