Feldspars in Weathering SpringerLink

Feldspar weathering occurs via dissolution of all components into solution, with the subsequent precipitation of secondary minerals from solution, and it is the feldspars dissolution rate which controls the overall rate of feldspar weathering. The rate of feldspar dissolution is controlled by the kinetics of surface reactions at the mineral

Characterization of the weathering status of feldspar

A morphological weathering index, based on the percent of the surface of the feldspar grains covered with etch pits, was used to evaluate weathering intensity. Results revealed that significant pedogenic weathering has occurred in the surface and subsurface horizons of these soils compared to the parent material.
