Abstract The saturation state of olivine, plagioclase, clinopyroxene, orthopyroxene, Fe–Ti oxides and apatite of variable composition has been assessed in natural waters in Iceland, with temperature ranging from 0°C to 300°C and in situ pH from below 5 to above 10. Cold waters are undersaturated with respect to olivine, orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene and plagioclases indicating that all these minerals tend to dissolve under weathering conditions. With increasing pH and temperature, the waters… CONTINUE READING
