Renforth, P.; et al. (2015): The dissolution of olivine added to soil: Implications for enhanced weathering

Renforth, P.; Pogge von Strandmann, P.A.E.; Henderson, G. M. (2015): The dissolution of olivine added to soil: Implications for enhanced weathering. In Applied Geochemistry 61, pp. 109–118. DOI 10.1016/j.apgeochem.2015.05.016.

"Here we present results from laboratory flow-through dissolution experiments which seek to bridge this observational discrepancy by using columns of soil returned to the laboratory from a field site. We constrain the dissolution rate of olivine added to the top of one of these columns, while maintaining much of the complexity inherent in the soil environment."
