Measurements of the concentration and vertical distribution of dissolved aluminium and silica, and of pH. in interstitial waters of recent marine sediments from the North Sea and the Mediterranean Sea were performed to evaluate the behaviour of aluminium during early diagenesis. The results suggest that thermodynamic equilibria alone do not control the concentrations of dissolved species in the system Al-Si-O2-H2O during early diagenesis. Rather, these concentrations are governed by dynamic factors involving mineral dissolution-precipitation reactions and diffusion.
