Project Info

This project is conducted laboratory experiments to examine the precise repose of our main weathering tracer, lithium isotopes, to different weathering conditions. We are artificially weathering basaltic rocks, and examining what happens with time. In particular, we are adding various organic acids, to determine the effect of plant growth and evolution on our chemical weathering tracer.
