Controls on seasonal variations of silicate weathering and CO 2 consumption in two river catchments on the NE Tibetan Plateau

Zhang, Fei; Jin, Zhangdong; Li, Fuchun; Yu, Jimin; Xiao, Jun


Water samples from the Buha and Shaliu Rivers, located on the semi-arid northeastern Tibetan Plateau, were collected weekly over a one year period. The major ionic compositions of water samples were measured and the daily contents of suspended particulate material (SPM) were monitored in both rivers in order to investigate the influence of lithology, climate and physical erosion on seasonal silicate weathering. In the Shaliu River, weathering of trace amounts of calcite contributes more than...[Show more]
