An estimate of dissolution rate constant of volcanic glass in volcanic ash soil from the Mt . Fuji area , central Japan

Compositional and mineralogical (primary silicate minerals, volcanic glass, secondary minerals) properties of weathered basaltic ash soil (“Andisol”) derived from Mt. Fuji, central Japan, with an age of ca. 6,000 y.B.P. to 240 y.B.P. were studied. X-ray fluorescence analysis indicates that the order of relative elemental mobilities during the weathering is… (More)
