A mass-transfer model explaining the origin of Ca and Si in the 'Pre-Salt' South Atlantic lacustrine systems


The complexity of the ‘Pre-Salt’ South Atlantic rift lakes turn these systems into a challenge because very few suitable lacustrine spherulite-forming analogs are known. The origin and nature of the carbonate-silica... [ view full abstract ]
