Hornfels Weathering

Project Description: 

Sue Brantley, Heather Buss, Tim White

Regolith development on volcaniclastics metamorphosed to hornfels facies will be investigated. We will sample and analyze chemistry and mineralogy of soils and regolith down to bedrock as a function of elevation from the East Peak-West Peak ridge down to the unmetamorphosed sediments in the Icacos watershed along a catena. We will also measure corestone size along the catena. The goal is to understand the chemical weathering of the hornfels and how it differs from the unmetamorphosed volcaniclastics.
