Geochemical processes that govern the behaviour and mobility of chemical elements are fundamental to our understanding of the formation and evolution of the solid Earth, its oceans, and its atmosphere. This interdisciplinary session will focus on theoretical, experimental, and field based studies addressing the mechanisms that govern the redistribution of elements between exogenic and endogenic systems, and how these mechanisms have evolved through time. Emphasis will be placed on (1) the leaching and transport of elements from continents to ocean, (2) the incorporation of volatiles and redox sensitive elements during hydrothermal alteration of the lithosphere (3) characterization of redox partitioning during metamorphic reactions and partial melting, (4) integrated studies of the chemical budget of subduction zones, (5) methodological developments relating to tracers of past and present geochemical mass transfers.
Submission by early career scientists and graduate students are particularly encouraged.
