The ratio of magnesium to calcium (Mg/Ca) in carbonate minerals in an abiotic setting is conventionally assumed to be predominantly controlled by (Mg/Ca)solution and a temperature dependant partition coefficient. This temperature dependence suggests... Read More about Mg/Ca ratios in freshwater microbial carbonates: Thermodynamic, kinetic and vital effects.

Linking mineralisation process and sedimentary product in terrestrial carbonates using a solution thermodynamic approach (2014)
Journal Article

Determining the processes which generate terrestrial carbonate deposits (tufas, travertines and to a lesser extent associated chemical sediments such as calcretes and speleothems) is a long-standing problem. Precipitation of mineral products from sol... Read More about Linking mineralisation process and sedimentary product in terrestrial carbonates using a solution thermodynamic approach.
