Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis (GEEA) is a co-owned journal of the Geological Society of London and the Association of Applied Geochemists (AAG).
GEEA focuses on mineral exploration using geochemistry; related fields also covered include geoanalysis, the development of methods and techniques used to analyse geochemical materials such as rocks, soils, sediments, waters and vegetation, and environmental issues associated with mining and source apportionment.
GEEA is well-known for its thematic sets on hot topics. In 2014 the journal published a thematic set on portable X-ray fluorescence in the geosciences. Abstracts are free on the Lyell Collection.
GEEA regularly publishes papers from the biennial International Applied Geochemistry Symposium (IAGS).
Papers that seek to integrate geological, geochemical and geophysical methods of exploration are particularly welcome, as are those that concern geochemical mapping and those that comprise case histories. Given the many links between exploration and environmental geochemistry, the journal encourages the exchange of concepts and data; in particular, to differentiate various sources of elements.
GEEA publishes research articles; discussion papers; book reviews; editorial content; thematic sets.
