AGU session - EP027 Rock to sediment: Biotic, lithologic, and climatic controls on regolith production, mixing and transport
We would like to invite your participation in our AGU Fall 2012 session:
EP027: Rock to sediment: Biotic, lithologic, and climatic controls on regolith production, mixing and transport.

Session Description: Regolith is generated, perturbed and removed by a suite of inter-dependent biological, chemical and physical processes. These processes respond to rock properties, tectonics and climate, and dictate changes in the materials’ geochemical and physical properties. Potential contributions include but are not limited to: local- and landscape-scale interactions between biological, chemical and physical weathering and transport, the impact of past climates and ecosystems on present-day sediment production, and the use of disparate tools (e.g. geochemical methods, paleoecology, models and field work) to quantify controls on rock-to-sediment conversion, mixing and transport.
Abstracts are due Wednesday 8 August 2012 at: http://agu-fm12.abstractcentral.com/
We look forward to seeing you at the session.
