Abstract deadline 16 February 2015

The Research in Progress (RiP) meeting of the Geochemistry Group, a special interest group of The Geological Society of London and The Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland, is the only annual meeting held in the UK with geochemistry as its sole theme.

Call for Abstracts

We are now accepting abstracts for the 2015 meeting to be held at National Oceanography Centre Southampton on Monday 23 March and Tuesday 24 March 2015. Submissions are welcomed from all aspects of geochemistry including, but not limited to, igneous and metamorphic geochemistry, aquatic or atmospheric chemistry, ocean geochemistry, cosmochemistry and isotope geochemistry. There will also be specific sessions focussing on ‘Technical and Analytical Developments in Geochemistry’ (kindly supported by JAAS) as well as ‘The Geochemistry of Mud and Sediment’, part of the Geological Society’s thematic year of Mud ( We also particularly welcome participation from members of the Stable Isotope Mass Spectrometry User Group (SIMSUG).

Preference for oral presentations will be given to early career researchers (graduate students and postdocs), as this is an ideal opportunity to practise talks for larger international conferences later in the year. Dedicated poster sessions will be held on both days and prizes will be awarded to the best student presentations for both talks and posters. Students presenting their research at this meeting will automatically satisfy one of the application criteria for a travel bursary from the Geochemistry Group to present their work at any future meeting/conferences with a geochemistry theme.

Keynote Seminar: 

As part of a session on 'The Geochemistry of Mud and Sediment' as part of the 2015 Year of Mud, Prof. Karen Hudson-Edwards from Birbeck, University of London will be giving a keynote seminar in this session on 'Metalliferous Mine-waste Muds: Toxic and Tantalizing'.
