Geochemistry Special Interest Group

The Geochemistry Special Interest Group (GSIG) is for people interested in geochemical process in New Zealand. Our newsletter provides a vessel for documenting low to high temperature research in progress, geochemical news, or opinions from the community, and we attempt to produce several newsletters each year. Our fundamental goal is to raise the profile of geochemistry in New Zealand so that research directions and links are strengthened. We hope to work towards geochemistry-focused sessions at the GSNZ annual conferences.

The unofficial committee members who have helped to shape the GSIG since 2017 are: Marco Brenna (University of Otago, Dept. Geology), Kathy Campbell (School of Environment, University of Auckland), Monica Handler (Victoria University of Wellington, School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences), Geoff Kilgour (GNS Science, Wairakei), Alex Nichols (University of Canterbury, Dept. Geological Sciences), Michael Rowe (University of Auckland, School of Environment), Claudine Stirling (University of Otago, Dept. Chemistry), Christian Timm (GNS Science, Wellington), Rose Turnbull (GNS Science, Dunedin), Georg Zellmer (Massey University, Institute of Agriculture and Environment).

You can join the GSIG by selecting this special interest group in your online GSNZ membership profile; the cost if free and the benefit is that you will be emailed a newsletter as soon as it is complete. Please contact for more information, or if you would like to contribute an article or raise a matter relevant to the community.
