Numerous studies have shown that mineral magnetic properties are sensitive indicators of weathering and soil formation (pedogenesis). However, the formation pathways and subsequent alteration mechanisms of specific weathering products are poorly constrained. We report a detailed magnetic investigation through a basalt profile that has been weathered under tropical conditions in South China. The rock magnetic analyses show that hot and humid conditions led to the neoformation of fine-grained...[Show more]
