Welcome to the Webpage of the Geochemistry Division (Abteilung Geochemie) of the Geowissenschaftliches Zentrum (GZG) at the Georg August University of Göttingen.

Here you will find information on people, research, teaching and excursions, as well as directions how to find us.

We also provide a short historical summary on research in geochemistry, starting from Viktor Moritz Goldschmidt early last century.

Our research areas include igneous geochemistry and evolution of magma systems mainly at convergent plate margins (Andes, Central America, Kamchatka, Italy).

A comprehensive geochemical data base on igneous rocks from the Central Andean Volcanic Zone (>1500 analyses) is provided here through a clickable map. You are also welcome to download the data base as excel sheet, kml-file. When using, please refer to our recent publications by Mamani et al (2008, 2009).
