Feldspar dissolution kinetics and equilibrium: Implications for natural and engineered systems
The chemical composition of groundwater is controlled largely by subsurface mineral/fluid interactions. Experimental measurement of plagioclase dissolution rates provides a critical means of understanding the relationship ...
A general kinetic model: Kinetics and atomic-scale mechanisms of feldspar dissolution
This thesis presents a general kinetic model and its application to feldspar dissolution. In the framework of Monte Carlo methods, the model simulates the stochastic processes of feldspar dissolution by incorporating bond ...
Resolving the nanoscale mechanisms of calcite growth and dissolution from nonstoichiometric and microbial solutions
The relative rates of calcite (CaCO3) precipitation and dissolution largely determine the preservation and subsequent accumulation of carbonate in the geologic record and are fundamental parameters for predicting the fate ...
