    The influence of mineral variability of CallovoOxfordian

    Abstract The upper part of the Callovo-Oxfordian clay-rich rock formation (C2c unit) (Meuse/Haute-Marne, France) displays large variations in mineralogical composition of quartz, carbonate and clay minerals. This study deals with the effects of this composition variability on the diffusion-dominated transport properties of HTO (tritiated water) 3 , 36 Cl and 137 Cs for these rocks.

    Hardness. Hardness is determined by scratching the mineral with a mineral or substance of known hardness. Hardness is a relative scale, thus to determine a minerals hardness, you must determine that a substance with a hardness greater than the mineral does indeed scratch the unknown mineral, and that the unknown mineral scratches a known mineral of lesser hardness.

    Factors that affect the rate of weathering

    Most weathering occurs on exposed surfaces of rocks and minerals. The more surface area a rock has, the more quickly it will weather. When a block is cut into smaller pieces, it has more surface area. So, therefore, the smaller pieces of a rock will weather faster than a large block of rock 3.
