  • The scarcity of recent dolomite contrasts strongly with its common abundance in ancient sedimentary rocks, leading to the paradox commonly referred to as the "dolomite problem". Despite many attempts, dolomite has never been precipitated at room temperature from natural seawater in the absence of bacterial mediation. It has been proposed that natural environments conducive to dolomite formation may be dynamic systems, in which the water chemistry (pH, alkalinity, saturation state with respect… CONTINUE READING
