- Sponsor Seminars
These are scheduled events to help delegates test out the tools and platform we will be using for the Q&A and other events at the conference.
Our workshop program provides training and teaching in topics across geochemistry and related fields. We are currently liaising with the workshop organisers to ascertain if any workshops can become virtual. Any updates will be added to this page.

Thanks for the presentation, can you give some examples on how you think this technique will be applied to natural samples?
Thanks for your question. We are measuring sulfate deposit through time to trace long-term sulfur cycling. In modern ocean, seawater sulfate is dominantly provided from oxidative weathering of continental sulfide (room temperature process), but in the earlier, volcanic input (high-T process) may possibly play a role. If the temperature dependence shown here can be applied, then we may tell the relative contribution to the ocean. Or, microbial oxidation (photo-chemo-trophic S-oxidation) and reduction (SRB) may also modify the S-O-clumped signature, which is now explored experimentally. Please also check 09d Katsuta et al. reporting some data for natural sulfate samples.
This is very exciting! More a comment, we synthesized some CaSO4 standards a few years back at various d18O values, using partial exchange with labelled water and then separately, different exchange temperatures. The exchange was between aqueous bisulfite and the water, then oxidation to sulfate with air, followed by synthesis of gypsum or anhydrite. If we can find them, more than happy to share!
