Division on Geochemistry, Mineralogy, Petrology & Volcanology

President: Marian Holness (gmpv@egu.eu)
Deputy President: Evgenia Ilyinskaya (e.ilyinskaya@leeds.ac.uk)

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.


The GMPV division collaborates with the VGP division of the American Geophysical Union, and with professional societies like the European Association of Geochemistry and the European Mineralogical Union.

Current issue of the EGU newsletter

As part of EGU’s Natural Hazards and Risk Reduction Month, this newsletter issue checks in on the state of progress of the 2015–2030 Sendai Framework and how different countries have approached this landmark agreement. This issue also highlights blogs from each of this month’s featured EGU divisions: Hydrological Sciences, Natural Hazards, and Seismology, plus a GeoLog about spatial seismic hazard in western Indonesia.

Upcoming events include a day-long ERC webinar hosted by EGU and the Union’s Autumn Election 2020 for the EGU Treasurer, for which members will receive an e-ballot in the mail next week.

The Loupe also features a new webinar about ERC grants, a new statement by EGU, and a call for new ECS members of the Education Committee. Be sure to apply by 2 November!
