The evolution of weathering profiles through time: New insights from uranium-series isotopes
The sustainability of soil is a major issue for society. In principle, the evolution of soil resources can be constrained by comparing the rates of soil erosion and production. Cosmogenic isotopes provide one measurement of soil erosion rates. They can also be used to estimate soil production rates but only if erosion is assumed to be balanced by production. This implies that the evolution of soil resources (thinning, thickening or constant) since soil thickness is assumed to be constant with...[Show more]
