2-8 March 2020:  36th International Geological Congress.  Delhi, India.  The IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines is organising a session with the title: 17.8 Challenges and Opportunities of Global-Scale Geochemical Mapping (4th Arthur Darnley Symposium) under Theme 17:  Advances in Geochemistry.  Website: http://36igc.org

 

 

2019 CONFERENCES AND EVENTS WITH THE IUGS COMMISSION ON GLOBAL GEOCHEMICAL BASELINES EITHER AS ORGANISER or PARTICIPANT

 

1. The IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines organised a Special Session on Geochemical mapping for environmental and resource management on the occasion of the 15th International Congress of the Geological Society of Greece, Athens, Hellas, 22-24 May 2019.  The session was organised jointly by the Commission, the Society for Environmental Geochemistry and Health (SEGH) and the EuroGeoSurveys Geochemistry Expert Group.  A one-day Workshop on Global-Scale Geochemical Mapping was also organised by the Commission within the Congress. For more information consult the congress web page at:  https://www.gsg2019.gr/.

The Special Session on Geochemical mapping for environmental and resource management was on the 23rd of May 2019 and was well attended (more than 60 participants). In total, there were 2 keynote and 10 oral presentations, and 5 posters.  The first keynote lecture "GEMAS:  Geochemistry of European Soil for Producing Good Quality Food" was delivered by Dr. Philippe Négrel (Chairperson of the EuroGeoSurveys Geochemistry Expert Group) because Dr. Anna Ladenberger (Deputy Chairperson of EuroGeoSurveys Geochemistry Expert Group) was unable to participate due to other commitments.  The second keynote lecture "Soil Contaminant Baselines in the Management of Urban Ecosystemswas delivered by Professor Andrew S. Hursthouse.  The one-day workshop on Global-Scale Geochemical Mapping was on the 24th of May 2019 and was attended by 22 people (Hellas 17; Poland 2; Hungary 1; Finland 2). The tutors were:  Alecos Demetriades (Treasurer and Chairperson of IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines), Timo Tarvainen (Chairperson of Data Management Committee), and Ariadne Argyraki (Chairperson of Public Relations and Finance Committee).

 

2. The IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines organised a Special Session on 'Regional and Global Geochemistry:  Opportunities and Challenges' on the occasion of the International Symposium on Environmental Geochemistry, Peking University, Beijing, China, 7-10 August 2019.  For more information consult the congress web page at:  http://webues.pku.edu.cn/iseg2019.  Before the congress a one-day workshop on "Applied Geochemistry" was organised on the 2nd of August 2019 at Shangluo Institute, Shangluo near Xi’An, Shaangxi Province, China, and a two-day workshop on "Global-scale Geochemical Mapping" was organised on the 5th and 6th of August 2019 at Henan University (College of Environmental Planning), Kaifeng, Henan Province, China.  The workshop at Shangluo Institute was attended by 15 people, and the Workshop at Henan University by 14 people.

 

The Special Session on 'Regional and Global Geochemistry:  Opportunities and Challenges" was on the 8th of August 2019 and was attended by more than 50 people.  In total, there were 1 keynote and 7 oral presentations.  The keynote presentation on "Continental-scale geochemistry for location of metallogenic provinces and environmental baselines" was delivered by Alecos Demetriades (Treasurer and Chairperson of Sampling Committee of the IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines).

 

3. The IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines organised a two-day workshop on 'Global Geochemical Baselines and Applied Geochemistry' on the occasion of the 5thYoung Earth Scientists Congress, which was in Berlin (Freie University) from the 9th to 13th September 2019.  The Workshop lectures were on the 8th and 9th of September 2019.  For more information consult the congress web page at:  http://www.yesdeutschland.weebly.com and https://yesdeutschland.weebly.com/pre--and-post-congress-training-courses-workshops-and-summer-schools.html.

The two-day workshop on 'Global Geochemical Baselines and Applied Geochemistry' was attended by 20 people from Argentina (1), Armenia (1) Azerbaijan (1), Egypt (1), India (5), Indonesia (1), Iraq (1), Namibia (6), Sri Lanka (2) and The Netherlands (1).  The workshop material was given to all participants on a USB-memory card, which contained apart from the lectures, folders with a lot of bibliography.

 

A plenary presentation with the title 'Global Geochemical Mapping for Resource and Environmental Management' was delivered on the 11th of September 2019 by Alecos Demetriades (Treasurer and Chairperson of the IUGS Commission on Global Geochemical Baselines).  More than 60 people attended the plenary session.
