The interaction between particle weathering and surface armouring and its effect on erosion has been investigated. The effect of soil armouring is to decrease sediment transport with time by preferentially stripping away fine particles. On the other hand the effect of weathering, which breaks down the particles in the armour, is generally believed to increase erosion. By extending an existing armouring model, ARMOUR, and using a variety of published weathering mechanisms this interaction has… 

The effects of sediment transport, weathering, and aeolian mechanisms on soil evolution

Aeolian‐derived soils are found throughout the world. Soil evolution processes in aeolian‐dominated landscapes differ from processes in bedrock‐weathering landscapes by a number of key aspects

Soil armouring and weathering: toward catchment-scale computational modelling

Hillslope surface armouring and weathering processes have been largely ignored in geomorphic and hydrological models due to their complexity and the uncertainty associated with them. However, their

Changes in Sediment Delivery from Hillslopes Affected by Shallow Landslides and Soil Armouring

Topsoil erosion and shallow landslides on steep hillslopes are often the main sources of sediment delivered to waterways, so understanding their interaction is critical for quantifying this sediment

A one-dimensional model for simulating armouring and erosion on hillslopes: 2. long term erosion and armouring predictions for two contrasting mine spoils

This paper investigates the dynamics of soil armouring as a result of fluvial erosion for a non‐cohesive sandy gravel spoil from the Ranger Mine, Australia, and a cohesive silt loam spoil from the

Laboratory simulation of the salt weathering of schist: II. Fragmentation of fine schist particles

Recent developments in long term landform evolution modelling have created a new demand for quantitative salt weathering data, and in particular data describing the size distribution of the weathered

A one-dimensional model for simulating armouring and erosion on hillslopes: 1. model development and event-scale dynamics

This paper presents an erosion model, ARMOUR, which simulates time‐varying runoff, erosion, deposition and surface armour evolution down a hillslope either as a result of a single erosion event or as

Numerical simulation of downstream fining by selective transport in gravel bed rivers: Model development and illustration

A numerical model has been developed for the routing of gravel-sized sediment along a river channel which is free to adjust both its long profile and surface texture. Hydraulic calculations use a

Laboratory simulation of the salt weathering of schist: 1. Weathering of schist blocks in a seasonally wet tropical environment

Data describing sediment generation focusing on the temporal evolution of size gradation are required for the prediction of long‐term landform evolution. This paper presents such data for the salt

Surface-based bedload transport relation for gravel rivers

Bedload transport in gravel-bed rivers is accomplished by means of the mobilization of grains exposed on the bed surface. This mobilization is due to the action of fluid forces on the exposed grains.

The role of moisture cycling in the weathering of a quartz chlorite schist in a tropical environment: findings of a laboratory simulation

Long‐term weathering of a quartz chlorite schist via wetting and drying was studied under a simulated tropical climate. Cubic rock samples (15 mm × 15 mm × 15 mm) were cut from larger rocks and

Geochemical Processes: Water and Sediment Environments

The approach of this book to geochemistry can be summarized in the question: What happens, and how fast does it happen, when waters, solids, and gases interact in the earths surface environment? The
