Abstract

The AA. performed a comparative experiment to investigate : 1) how the ubiquitous soil bacterium Bacillus subtilis weathers granite; and 2) which granite-forming minerals weather more rapidly via biological processes. Granite surfaces were observed by SEM before and after the experiment. B. subtilis had a strong influence on granite weathering by forming pits. Plagioclase was more vulnerable to bacterial weathering than biotite among the granite composing minerals
