[1] Loads and yields of dissolved and particulate organic and inorganic carbon (DOC, POC, DIC, PIC) were measured and modeled at three locations on the Yukon River (YR) and on the Tanana and Porcupine rivers (TR, PR) in Alaska during 2001–2005. Total YR carbon export averaged 7.8 Tg C yr , 30% as OC and 70% as IC. Total C yields (0.39–1.03 mol C m 2 yr ) were proportional to water yields (139–356 mm yr ; r = 0.84) at all locations. Summer DOC had an aged component (fraction modern (FM) = 0.94–0… CONTINUE READING
