The breaking down of massive rock into smaller grains and the resultant increase in mineral surface area, is potentially the most critical step in soil formation. The aim of this study is to investigate how mineral surface area and porosity varies during pedogenesis, and how these variations in conjucnction with mineralogical changes influence soil mineral reactivity.
