Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis

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.

New Chief Editor

Dr Scott Wood, Dean of Science and Mathematics at North Dakota State University, has been appointed Chief Editor of Geochemistry: Exploration, Environment, Analysis (GEEA), from 1 August 2018. Read Scott Wood’s editorial in the May issue of GEEA:

Online in the Lyell Collection

The journal is included the Lyell Collection and articles appear online soon after they have been accepted for publication and ahead of the printed volume or issue. From May 2018 journal articles will be posted as accepted manuscripts and then replaced by the published article (the version of record). The journal is easily accessible on mobile devices.

Print journal

The journal is published in print in February, May, August and November. 

The journal is abstracted and/or indexed in:

  • AGI’s Bibliography and Index of Geology
  • Chemical Abstracts
  • Current Contents
  • Engineering Index
  • GeoRef
  • Mineralogical Abstracts
  • GeoArchive
  • Thomson ISI database (SCIE, CCIPC & ES)
