Sea water must be undersaturated for chemical solution of calcium carbonate to occur. A practical criterion for undersaturation is shown to be (Ca2+) (CO32-) < K'SP, where K'SP is the apparent (stoichiometric) solubility product. The calculations used in conjunction with this rule are outlined. The factors which affect K'SP are examined. These factors are temperature, salinity, pressure, crystal structure, mineral composition, particle size, adsorption of ions such as magnesium, chelation, and… CONTINUE READING
