  • Biogeochemical Cycles

    The amount of limestone deposited in the ocean depends somewhat on the amount of warm, tropical, shallow oceans on the planet because this is where prolific limestone-producing organisms such as corals live. The carbon can be released back to the atmosphere if the limestone melts or is metamorphosed in a subduction zone. The Nitrogen Cycle

    How do limestone caves form? What is Karst? Jenolan, with its caves, underground rivers and natural archways, is an example of a type of landform called Karst. Karst landforms occur where rock is easily dissolved in natural waters (fresh). Karst landforms are typically found in limestone areas.

  • Emissions from the Cement Industry

    May 09, 2021The direct emissions of cement occur through a chemical process called calcination. Calcination occurs when limestone, which is made of calcium carbonate, is heated, breaking down into calcium oxide and CO 2. This process accounts for ~50 percent of all emissions from cement production.

  • Factors that affect the rate of weathering

    2. Chemical weathering - process by which the internal structure of a mineral is altered by the addition or removal of elements. Change in phase (mineral type) and composition are due to the action of chemical agents. Chemical weathering is dependent on available surface for reaction temperature and presence of chemically active fluids.

    The blast furnace uses coke, iron ore and limestone to produce pig iron. Coal is a key part of the coke-making process. The coal is crushed and ground into a powder and then charged into an oven where it is heated to approximately 1800F in the absence of oxygen. As the oven is heated, the coal begins to melt so most of the volatile matter
