Weathering, river discharge surprisingly constant during Ice Age cycles

8 junio 2015

Contrary to expectations, weathering rates over the past two million years have remained constant through glacial cycles, new research shows. Scientists are interested in the rates of these chemical weathering processes because they have big implications for the planet’s carbon cycle, which shuttles carbon dioxide between land, sea, and air and influences global temperatures.
