Question: weathering continues to occur on earth yet the concentrations of...

Question details

Weathering continues to occur on Earth, yet the concentrations of major seawater elements derived from weathering do not build up in the ocean; what is the term describing this condition? Provide an example of a major element derived from weathering, what process is occurring to prevent its continual build-up in the ocean, and an approximation of its concentration in seawater (order of magnitude). BONUS: for the element you named, how does its position in the Periodic Table relate to its weathering behavior?
