  Information - GMPV35 Chemical weathering: processes and rates (co-sponsored by EAG)

Event Information
This session is focused on chemical weathering at the surface and subsurface of the Earth but will include broad aspects. Catchment-based approaches (at all scale), soil-based approaches, experimental and modelling-approaches are encouraged. We would particularly welcome studies were chemical weathering reactions not involving atmospheric CO2 as a proton donnor and therefore have contributions on weathering of volcanic provinces by sulfuric and chlorhydric acids. Fluxes of dissolved elements derived from shallow or deep groundwaters not associated to river systems are a notably unresolved question and contributions of studies addressing this problem are welcome. This session is open to present day and past weathering system and fluxes. New proxies (i.e. isotopic) of chemical weathering are encouraged.
