On slide 7, Figure c, what is the cause(s) for the spikes in Ca concentration (approximately 1-10 years) and the associated rapid declines for both models?
In your models, what are the main drivers for the observed changes in pH over time? Thanks!
Interesting results! In the model, it looks like illitization/loss of smectite occurs mostly after the thermal pulse. What do you think are causing these to happen? Thanks
