I'm reading plenty of papers these days about carbonate concretions, dolomite formation in terrestrial environments and paleosols. Here's of a collection of the papers that I personally find most interesting and informative. There is currently a lot of cool stuff happening regarding dolomite formation in low-temperature environments. These articles are on the cutting-edge in my opinion. Of course it is but a tiny collection...
- Precipitation of low-temperature dolomite from an anaerobic microbial consortium: the role of methanogenic Archaea (Kenward et al., 2009)
- Microbially mediated carbonates in the Holocene deposits from Sarlieve, a small ancient lake of the French Massif Central, testify to the evolution of a restricted environment (Breheret et al.; 2007)
- Pedogenic origin of dolomite in a basaltic weathering profile, Kohala peninsula, Hawaii (Capo et al., 2000)
- Microbial precipitation of dolomite in methanogenic groundwater (Robets et al., 2004)
- Presence of sulfate does not inhibit low-temperature dolomite precipitation (Sanchez-Roman et al., 2009)
- The role of biomineralization in the origin of sepiolite and dolomite (Leguey et al., 2010)
- Origin of magnesium in clays from the Amargosa desert, Nevada (Khoury et al., 1982)
