Weathering of a chronosequence of landslides

Project Description: 

Sue Brantley, Heather Buss

We will analyze soils on five landslides that constitute a chronosequence of landslide events. These soils were sampled by Art Johnson as published in Zarin et al. (xxx): we will analyze the same samples for chemistry and mineralogy with respect to depth. We will also revisit these same landslides to resample and reanalyze. The goal is to understand how landslides affect weathering and solute fluxes in the Luquillo mountains.
