||The relationship between geohydrology and chemical weathering of Mississippian siliceous limestone on the Western Highland Rim of Tennessee is described. Skillman basin is a small (2.57 square mile) representative of myriads of tributary basins in the Western Highland Rim. Its 200 feet of relief spans the 200 foot thickness of the Fort Payne Formation. Precipitation has a pH of about 6 and a total dissolved solids content of about 15 ppm. As water continues through saprolith it picks up more silica (to about 9 ppm), and upon coming in contact with bedrock it dissolves about 65 ppm hardness and deposits about 1 ppm silica on the top of bedrock.
