  • THE observed trend of increasing oceanic 87Sr/86Sr ratios during the late Cenozoic led Raymo et al.1 to propose that chemical weathering rates increased at this time as a result of enhanced weatherability of silicate rocks. They suggested that this was due in turn to continential uplift, primarily in the Himalayas and the Andes. Because weathering involves the reaction of silicates with atmospheric carbon dioxide, considerations of changes in weathering rates must take into account the need to… CONTINUE READING
