Below you can find the proposed preliminary structure of databases to be maintained at the IGCP 405 home page:

A. Thermodynamic properties of minerals and related substances at ambient conditions, i.e. mostly at 298,15o K and 1 bar pressure (particularly those included in weathering reactions):

Mineral name

Formula

Enthalpy

Entropy

Gibbs function

Reference

B. Rate constants of weathering reactions:

Rock, mineral

Reaction scheme

Rate constant

Units

Conditions

Reference

(further information can be included)

C. Literature-references:

  • General references and bibliography
  • Specific references
  • D. Institutions World-wide

    E. Personal (Participants and Independent Researchers)

    (will include address, present occupation / employer, research fields of interest, access to instrumentation, references)

    F. Vacancies:

    G. Projects

    H. Conferences
