Urban Geochemistry in Applied Geochemistry
We recently published our article in Applied Geochemistry resulting from the 2014 meeting - Developing the scientific framework for urban geochemistry. In it, we review the discipline, propose five grand themes of study, a definition of urban geochemistry, and a unifying question.
Elementa Special Issue on Urban Geochemistry
Online Now: Elementa - Science of the Anthropocene has a Special Feature on Urban Geochemistry that grew out of our first Working Group Meeting in 2014 at The Ohio State University. The feature is edited by Dave Long (Michigan State University) and Berry Lyons (Ohio State University). Elementa is entirely open-access.

1st Meeting of the Urban Geochemistry Working Group in 2014
The first meeting of the IAGC Urban Geochemistry Working Group was held at The Ohio State University on the 5th and 6th of August, 2014. The meeting was facilitated by W. Berry Lyons (OSU) and David Long (MSU) who are co-chairs of the working group and Chris Gardner (OSU) from the IAGC Business Office.
Day one consisted of introductions during which participants used one or two slides summarizing their interests in urban geochemistry, excellent plenary presentations by Joel Moore (Towson U) who presented on quantifying anthropogenic and natural sources of CO2 in urban areas, Yo Chin (OSU) who discussed the transformation and fate of everyday chemicals in urban watersheds, and Gabe Filippelli (IUPUI) who described his research on geochemistry and urban health. The day then ended with a poster session.
