PCIGR Research Featured at Goldschmidt Conference

August 2019

A group from PCIGR attended the 2019 Goldschmidt Conference, held in Barcelona, Spain from August 18-23.


Team members presented their research on Hawaiian lavas and the origin of enriched Hawaiian mantle signatures, the future of active learning and teaching in geochemistry, the efficacy of honey as an urban biomonitor for heavy metal distribution, and the use of isotopic analyses of salmon to assess lead sources in the ocean. 

PCIGR’s work on honeybees and salmon was chosen from among ~4000 submissions to be featured as a conference press release. Congratulations, team!
