Abstract

Focuses on quantiatively defining the chemical changes occurring in Falling Spring Creek, a travertine-depositing stream located in Alleghany County, Virgina. The processes of CO2 outgassing and calcite precipitation or dissolution control the chemical evolution of the stream. Physical evidence for calcite precipitation exists in the travertine deposits which are first observed immediately above the waterfall and extend for at least 1.0 km below the falls. Net calcite precipitation occurs at all times of the year but is greatest during low-flow conditions in the summer and early fall. -from Authors
