Buckingham et al. (2022): Soil core study indicates limited CO2 removal by enhanced weathering in dry croplands in the UK

Laboratory studies have attempted to evaluate the potential of enhanced weathering as a CO2 removal technique but do not simulate the geochemical complexity of soil environments, and studies in the field are limited in the nature of data they can collect. To overcome these limitations, this study uses an experimental set-up which fully encapsulates field conditions in a controlled setting using soil cores removed from UK cropland and treated with crushed basalt.
