Sedimentary balance through geological time.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

2 Scopus citations


Balance in the sedimentary cycle is maintained by the sum total of weathering, transport, deposition of sediments, and their eventual reincorporation in the continental crust. Biological activity and primarily photosynthesis strongly affect the fluxes and deposition of carbon, sulfur, iron, and phosphorus containing sediments. Changes in the net deposition rate of organic carbon produce changes in all the other fluxes within the cycle. -from Author
