This paper describes the oxidation of iron-rich uranium-bearing rocks by infiltration of groundwater. A reaction-diffusion model is set up to describe the sequence of reactions involving iron oxidation, uranium oxidation and reduction, sulphuric acid production, and dissolution of the host rock that occur. On a geological timescale of millions of years, the(More)
We analyze an increasingly popular NMR method analogous to the black lipid membrane (BLM) isotopic tracer experiment for the study of mediated cation transport but involving the preparation of vesicles with an environment asymmetric in that paramagnetic metal ions are present only outside the vesicles. This asymmetry is manifest in the NMR spectrum as two(More)
Microbialites are sedimentary deposits formed by the metabolic interactions of microbes and their environment. These lithifying microbial communities represent one of the oldest ecosystems on Earth, yet the molecular mechanisms underlying the function of these communities are poorly understood. In this study, we used comparative metagenomic and(More)
