To characterize the influence of ionic strength on the kinetics of calcite precipitation from seawater solutions we carried out a set of experiments at four different ionic strengths (I = 0.10; 0.34; 0.55; 0.93 m) in NaCl-CaCl2 solutions, at the temperature of 298.15K and a CO2 partial pressure of 100 Pa. The constant addition technique was used in order to maintain [Ca2+] at ≅10.5 mmol/kg, while the [CO32−] was varied to isolate its role on the precipitation rate of calcite. Assuming that… CONTINUE READING
