Action Group ”Nutrient weathering from rocks” session at Goldschmidt 2017
The feedbacks among tectonics, weathering, erosion, rainfall, temperature and terrestrial life play an important role in stabilizing climate and thus ensuring planetary habitability on geologic time scales. Despite decades of work, a comprehensive understanding of the nature and strength of the feedbacks, and how they work together to regulate climate, remain elusive. Sessions under this theme will explore new approaches to this old problem, with a focus on innovations in observation and modelling of chemical weathering, physical erosion, and the factors that control these processes, in the past, present, and future.
