Simultaneous prediction of weathering rind thickness and soil depth. The same 1μm pore size was used for both, but the hydraulic conductivity in typical soils is about six orders of magnitude larger than for basalt. The exponent applied is the known value for the inverse of the fractal dimensionality of the percolation backbone, implying unsaturated conditions for surface rocks, saturated for soils.

Physics professor Dr. Allen Hunt recently published his work, which sought to answer the important question of "why rates of soil development and rock weathering slow over time".
