Mountain erosion may add CO2 to the atmosphere

Scientists have long known that steep mountain ranges can draw carbon dioxide (CO2) out of the atmosphere — as erosion exposes new rock, it also starts a chemical reaction between minerals on hill slopes and CO2 in the air, ‘weathering’ the rock and u…

As part of their work, lead author Joel Davis of the University College […]

New insights into the relationship between erosion and tectonics in the Himalayas

Earth’s climate interacts with so called surface processes — such as landslides or river erosion — and tectonics to shape the landscape that we see. In some regions, the sheer force of these processes has led scientists to believe that they may even …
