To study the variations of microparticles and their origins, microparticles concentrations, stable oxygen isotope (delta18 O) and major ion concentrations were analyzed in snow samples collected from Mt. Geladaindong in the source region of Yangtze River. The correlation coefficents of different size microparticles in three snowpits are above 0.9(More)
A preliminary study of major ions in water of three rivers (Niyaqu, Qugaqie, Angqu) in the Nam Co Basin has been carried out in June-October 2006. An obvious difference is found among these rivers, whose ionic characteristics are mainly influenced by the length of rivers and their supply sources. Among the three rivers, the contents of total dissolve solids(More)
In order to investigate the temporal and spatial variations, sources, and major controlling factors of the major ions in Nam Co Lake water, inshore surface water samples were collected at a fixed site (30 degrees 47.27'N, 90 degrees 58.53'E, 4718 m a. s. l.) from 2006 to 2010, at the vertical profiles in the center of the lake in August 2009, and at both(More)
Concentrations and variations of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) and carbon monoxide (CO) within tents from the Nam Co and Ando regions were observed at summer 2009, in order to understand the concentrations and variations of PM2.5 and CO in these tents (or in rooms) and their main affect factors, as well as the exposure of different residents. The result(More)
To investigate the transport of mercury from glacier to runoff in typical inland glacial area in the Tibetan Plateau, we selected Zhadang glacier and Qugaqie river Basin located in the Nyainqentanglha Range region and collected samples from snow pit, glacier melt-water and Qugaqie river water during 15th August to 9'h September 2011. Mercury speciation and(More)
Methylmercury (MeHg), a neurotoxin, is a global concern because of its potential risk to human and ecological health. Elevated mercury (Hg) concentrations were recently reported in the Tibetan Plateau (TP) due to increasing Hg input from distant regions, yet little is known about MeHg production and distribution in the terrestrial ecosystems of the TP.(More)
To investigate the tempo-spatial distribution of total mercury (T-Hg) concentration in water bodies in the Nam Co basin on the Tibetan Plateau, inflowing river water and surface lake water samples were collected from 2007 to 2010. The T-Hg concentration and its relationship with precipitation and river runoff were analyzed. The results showed that the(More)
