The compounds making up the vast majority of Earth's land surface - the minerals that make up rocks - are, by and large, very slow to react.
As a consequence, large-scale weathering is a process that takes place on a timescale of millions of years, over which periods it constitutes a critically important carbon-sink. Because, via weathering of rocks and reprecipitation of weathering products as carbonate sediments (e.g.
