Taylor, L. L.; et al. (2020): Increased carbon capture by a silicate-treated forested watershed affected by acid deposition

Taylor, L. L.; Driscoll, C. T.; Groffman, P. M.; Rau, G. H.; Blum, J. D.; Beerling, D. J. (2020): Increased carbon capture by a silicate-treated forested watershed affected by acid deposition. In Biogeosciences Discuss 2020, pp. 1–29. DOI: 10.5194/bg-2020-288.

"Here we show that a low 3.44 t ha−1 wollastonite treatment in an 11.8-ha acid-rain-impacted forested watershed in New Hampshire, USA led to cumulative carbon capture by carbonic acid weathering of 0.025–0.13 t CO2 ha−1 over 15 years."
