Weathering rates and carbon storage along a climosequence of soils developed from contrasting granites in northeast Brazil

Highlights•The granite type governs the weathering intensity and carbon stocks in soils.•Granite type is as important as the climate in determining soil properties.•The higher the proportion of mafic minerals in granites, the higher the clay and iron contents in their derived soils•Granites differ in mineralogy composition and thus in the composition of soils developed in their regoliths.

Influence of metaluminous granite mineralogy on the rare earth element geochemistry of rocks and soils along a climosequence in Brazil

Highlights•XRD, SEM and EDS are used to relate granite signatures and REE geochemistry in soils.•I-type granite mineralogy affects the REE geochemistry of soils.•Bastnaesite seems to be the major source of REE in I-type granite and their soils.•Weathering processes showed significant impact on REE fractionation in soil profiles.•The highest LREE/HREE fractionation was found in the humid zone.

Effect of I- and S-type granite parent material mineralogy and geochemistry on soil fertility: A multivariate statistical and Gis-based approach

Highlights•Two geological granite zones were studied in a semiarid region of Brazil.•Soils that overlie I-type granites had a higher fertility than those derived from S-types.•Multivariate techniques properly discriminated the soils derived from different granites.•Spatial distribution maps were suitable soil fertility management tools.
