Welcome to the website of the Institute of Geochemistry and Petrology at the ETH Zurich.
Our research is focused on the geochemistry and petrology of the solid Earth with its magmas and fluids. We are active in other research branches: cosmochemistry, volcanology, fluid and rock mechanics, mineral physics, surface water and marine geochemistry, mineral resources, among others.

The institute is structured into principal groups headed by Professorial Chair:

Isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry – Maria Schönbächler and Derek Vance

Fluids and mineral deposits – Christoph Heinrich

Magmatic petrology - Olivier Bachmann
Experimental geochemistry and mineral physics – N.N.
Crystalline geology and experimental petrology – Max W. Schmidt
