Combination of numerical modelling and field measurements reveals strong regional control of slope on soil thickness and chemical weathering in subtropical Brazil


February 24, 2020




During a two months field campaign in Southern Brazil regional soil samples were gathered to asses the impact of land use and topography on soil depth and chemical weathering. In this talk, Liesa Brosens will present how combining these field data with a numerical model allowed us to identify the impact of topography on soil depth and chemical weathering degrees and rates, and how this can be related to soil residence times.
