Scope of theme:
Understanding the complex interactions of chemistry, biology, physics and energy, which produce and sustain soils and regoliths, is major challenge in earth science. This theme will include topics related to geochemical kinetic and thermodynamic interactions, ecosystem functioning and biogeochemical controls on weathering and mineral nutrient interactions, relationships between chemical and physical erosion and tectonics and the feedback between weathering and climate. Sessions will describe an array of computational, experimental and field -based approaches and incorporate new isotopic techniques and nano-sciences and -technology.
