Carbon dioxide efficiency of terrestrial enhanced weathering

Article English OPEN
Moosdorf, Nils; Renforth, Philip; Hartmann, Jens;

Terrestrial enhanced weathering, the spreading of ultramafic silicate rock flour to enhance natural weathering rates, has been suggested as part of a strategy to reduce global atmospheric CO2 levels. We budget potential CO2 sequestration against associated CO2 emissions... View more
