SEGH is pleased to invite you to the 37th international conference in Eldoret, Kenya.
The theme of Geochemistry for Sustainable Development.
25-27 October 2022
A consortium of Senior Academics and Researchers in Medical Geology, Environmental Geochemistry and Health came together in 2021 to put together an international virtual platform for students (undergrads and postgrads) to showcase their research findings in environmental geochemistry and health and medical geology. The First edition of the Conference held virtually on 18-20 October 2021 for the Latin Americas. Fifteen students participated with more than 100 attendees. These student researchers examined the impacts of the environment from both natural and anthropogenic influences on human, animal, and plant health. These are increasingly important fields of study that will help minimize adverse impacts of both modern industrial society and the natural environment on living organisms. The conference received institutional support from several International scientific and governmental organisations. The 2022 edition is being devoted to the Africa Continent.
25-28 October 2022
During its main 60th anniversary celebration, the IUGS is pleased to present the "First 100 IUGS Geological Heritage Sites" at an event in Zumaia, Basque Coast UGGp (Spain) on 25-28 October 2022 . This announcement will kick off an endeavor to designate geological sites from around the world that are iconic, recognized by all geoscience community for their impact in understanding the Earth and its history. More than 200 specialists from almost 40 nations and ten international organisations, are taking part in it. The First 100 aspires to be a memorable event that culminates in a spectacular celebration. Mark your calendars for the big IUGS@60 event.

We would like to invite you to the Deep Digital Earth (DDE) Forum organized by UNESCO, IUGS and DDE, to be convened on November 9th, 2022 in Room II, UNESCO Headquarters in Paris.
The Forum is intended to give a comprehensive, synthetic overview of achievements of the DDE over three years as the first IUGS Recognized Big Science Program and a pilot project on Open Science, and to promote globalization and digitization of scientific research.
Interested in organising an SEGH conference, meeting or event? Please read our helpful how-to guide with information on what type of event you can run, event requirements and budget planning.

Michael Watts will provide working examples that explain the importance of quality measurements for commercial and scientific client needs or for scientific written outputs – essentially the confidence required for the end-user to make a decision with measured data. The principles of quality management systems to ensure confidence in measured systems will refer to ISO17025 – the principals are the same for non-/accredited laboratories. Reference will be made to basic checks on the output of quality measurements, which put together can provide the confidence in measurements from a laboratory.
16-17th May 2022
The Symposium SY-04 IUGS, Geoparks and IGCP will be held on May 16th-17th, 2022 during the Geological Association of Canada Annual Meeting. The Symposium will focus on retrospection, today and the future and Canadian contributions.

Speaker: Prof. Michael H. Ramsey, University of Sussex & RSC AMC (Chair) (Eurachem) This is a unique opportunity for our ECRs to learn from an expert in the field of measurement uncertainty, Prof. Michael H. Ramsey, Chair, Sampling Uncertainty Working Group of EURACHEM and past SEGH president. The uncertainty of measurement values (MU) is now often estimated in most laboratories, but this usually overlooks the often much larger contribution that arises from the field sampling (UfS). This talk will describe how UfS can be estimated by taking a small proportion of field samples in duplicate, and analysing each duplicate twice in a balanced design. Analysis of variance is then used to estimate the total MU, and to separate its components arising from both the chemical analysis and the sampling (UfS). There will be a 45 min lecture + 10-15 min questions and discussion.

Environmental Pollution in Asia Workshop Asia has a unique geographic location in terms of climatic and biodiversity conditions. Due to high population and extensive industrial activities, this continent is facing severe environmental stresses on air, soil, sediments and water resources at local as well as regional scale. This is significantly more severe compared to other continents. Future economic development in Asia, life style, and survival of humans will be severely impacted by our ability to manage our natural environment. Besides these issues, Asia also faces several other issues related to the environment, e.g., intense land use and shifting pattern of agriculture, poorly applied and managed pesticides and fertilizers in soil and water; untreated or partially treated industrial solid and liquid waste in urban areas. Therefore, there is an urgent and strong need to focus on highlighting and documenting some of these issues and potential solutions that are region-specific. The present workshop will highlight the status of environmental pollution from Asia. The workshop will be useful to researchers, scientist, environmental organizations and industries in Asia and all over the world.

Friday 28th January 2022 SEGH invites you to attend an online event on the 28thJanuary at 14.00 London, UK time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of SEGH in 2021 during which short presentations will be provided from each of the authors who submitted a commentary piece or paper that represented the diversity of SEGH to a special issue entitled ‘Celebrating 50 years of the Society for Environmental Geochemistry & Health’ has been prepared throughout 2021 in the official journal of SEGH, Environmental Geochemistry & Health. Details are attached for the meeting and how to connect via Zoom. This will be an open meeting with an invitation to members and new friends to attend.

E-waste pollutants are recalcitrant xenobiotic compounds, found in different environmental compartments. E-waste pollutants have low water solubility and semi-volatile hence get attached with the soil or sediment organic matter. Due to their high lipophilic properties, e-waste pollutants biomagnify into the food chain, and bioaccumulate in organisms in general, and in human-being particularly. It has been reported that e-waste pollutants pose toxic effects such as carcinogenic effects, neurotoxic effects, endocrine disruption, and immune-toxic effects etc to living organisms. The present workshop will highlight the e-waste pollution monitoring, exposure to human-being, risk assessment and toxicities using human cell model. The workshop will be useful to researchers, scientist, environmental organizations and electronic industries all over the world.
