Simulating loss of primary silicate minerals from soil due to long-term weathering using Allogen : comparison with soil chronosequence, lake sediment and river solute flux data

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This paper presents ALLOGEN, a process model of soil mineral chemical weathering. Comparison with observed weathering rate data (river flux studies, chronosequences and lake sediment chemical stratigraphy) suggests that soil mineral depletion can be usefully simulated over timescales applicable to Quaternary and Holocene studies. To illustrate this, the plausibility of a weathering interpretation is demonstrated for sediment records at Lake Hope Simpson and Moraine Lake and the lake chronosequence at Glacier Bay
