Olivine Dissolution in Seawater

Implications for CO2 Sequestration through Enhanced Weathering in Coastal Environments

Enhanced weathering of (ultra)basic silicate rocks such as olivine-rich dunite has been proposed as a large-scale climate engineering approach. When implemented in coastal environments, olivine weathering is expected to increase seawater alkalinity, thus resulting in additional CO2uptake from the atmosphere. More
