Dear Colleagues:

We invite you to submit an abstract to Goldschmidt 2024 Session 3b - Novel advances in understanding the behavior of noble gases in geologic materials. Goldschmidt will take place August 18-23 in Chicago, IL, USA, and you can choose to participate in person or remotely. The abstract submission deadline is March 29. Our session keynote speaker is Dr. Zheng-Tian Lu of the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC). Please consider joining us in Chicago to discuss exciting advances in noble gas geochemistry!

Session Description: Noble gases serve an important role as key geochemical and geochronologic tracers in a wide range of geologic materials. This group of elements, which represent 23 isotopes with a highly heterogeneous distribution on an mineralogical-cosmic scale, offers insights into a diverse array of earth and planetary processes, including solar system formation, planetary evolution, tectonics, mantle outgassing, paleoclimate, and hydrogeological and geochemical processes. Applying noble gases to investigate these processes requires a deeper understanding of the production and movement of noble gases through geologic materials. Recent work by the noble gas community has yielded advancements in our understanding of noble gas production, diffusion, partitioning, and solubility in geologic materials including rocks, minerals, fluids, gases, and extraterrestrial objects. This session invites submissions that cover any aspect of this wide range of topics, with a particular focus on advances in the measurement, modeling, and kinetic theory of noble gases in geologic materials.
