Weathering the escarpment: chemical and physical rates and processes, South-eastern Australia
Differences in chemical weathering extent and character are expected to exist across topographic escarpments due to spatial gradients of climatic and/or tectonic forcing. The passive margin escarpment of south-eastern Australia has a debated but generally accepted model of propagation in which it retreated (within 40 Ma) to near its current position following rifting between Australia and New Zealand 85-100 Ma before present. We focus on this escarpment to quantify chemical weathering rates and...[Show more]
