Atomistic simulation of minerals and geochemistry

By david satterthwaite • February 18th, 2015

Knowledge of chemical reactions and physical processes at the atomic level is crucial to solving many problems in the geosciences. For example, biomineralisation of carbonates and phosphates is still far from understood and yet is vital to nature and biomimetic science. In the case of carbonates, these geochemical processes are also relevant to long-term geosequestrationmore…
