Yangtse River sediments and erosion rates from source to sink traced with cosmogenic 10 Be: Sediments from major rivers

Chappell, John; Zheng, Hongbo; Fifield, L Keith


Estimates of regional erosion and sediment mixing from different sources in the Yangtse River system are presented, based on sand samples collected from major tributaries and the trunk stream, at 23 sites between western Sichuan and the Yangtse Delta. Mixing is estimated from concentrations of Mg, Ca, Sr, Ti, Mn and Fe, which are substantially higher in sand from major tributaries in the western Yangtse River catchment than from tributaries in the eastern catchment. Intermediate concentrations...[Show more]
