The abstract submission deadline for the Goldschimdt 2019 (Barcelona, Spain Aug 18-23) is rapidly approaching. Please consider submitting an abstract to session 09i "Quantifying the impact of plants on rates of weathering and erosion” within Theme 9: “Weathering, Erosion, and the Critical Zone.” Kate Maher (Stanford) will be our keynote speaker.
Session Title: Quantifying the impact of plants on rates of weathering and erosion
Session Description: Plants irreversibly alter the chemical and physical properties of bedrock and soil Yet, it remains challenging to quantify their impact on landscape evolution and rates of weathering and erosion. This session focuses on studies that advance understanding of the processes by which plants impact rates of mass transport and transformation across a range of spatial and temporal scales in the Critical Zone. We seek presentations from diverse disciplines including novel approaches to coupled landscape evolution and reactive transport modeling, isotopic fingerprinting of biogeochemical processes, and field and laboratory scale experimental studies.
