Chemical weathering is the chemical dissolution of rocks at and near Earth’s surface. Chemical weathering is important for climate stabilisation, regulating ocean chemistry, nutrient supply and landscape evolution. Chemical weathering most rapidly occurs where physical conditions are such that fresh mineral surfaces are readily replenished and where the rates of surface runoff are high. This thesis investigates the role of groundwater in transporting chemical weathering fluxes directly to the ocean, and develops an understanding of the link between physical erosion and chemical weathering.
