Nov 01, 2018 Yet, the different microbial populations observed in the waste rock in both columns at the end of the weathering experiments , suggest that the microbial populations in the treated waste rock from column 1 did not recover to pre-treatment levels similar to those observed in column 2 within the experimental period 400 days. The effects of the applied heating and drying treatment on the microbial abundance and diversity in the waste rock may principally be temporary, but the microbial ...

On weathering and alteration of rocks

On Weathering And Alteration Of Rocks

Weathering refers to the various processes of physical disintegration and chemical decomposition that occur when rocks at the Earths surface are subjected to physical, chemical, and biological processes induced or modified by wind, water, and climate. These processes produce soil, unconsolidated rock detritus, and components dissolved in groundwater and runoff.
