This study investigates dissolved, suspended loads and sands of major Icelandic rivers and determines chemical and mechanical erosion rates as well as rates of CO2 consumption by the chemical weathering. A steady state model of erosion is used to locally calculate the river suspended load fluxes needed to balance chemical weathering. The total dissolved solid concentrations range from 20 to 179 mg/kg. The highest concentrations are for spring fed rivers draining young rocks in the vicinity of… 
Contrasted Chemical Weathering Rates in Cratonic Basins: The Ogooué and Mbei Rivers, Western Central Africa
Despite the absence of tectonic activity, cratonic environments are characterized by strongly variable, and in places significant, rock weathering rates. This is shown here through an exploration of
Pyrite Oxidation Drives Exceptionally High Weathering Rates and Geologic CO2 Release in Mountaintop‐Mined Landscapes
Weathering is the ultimate source of solutes for ecosystems, controls chemical denudation of landscapes, and drives the geologic carbon cycle. Mining and other land‐moving operations enhance physical
Eroding Cascadia—Sediment and solute transport and landscape denudation in western Oregon and northwestern California
Riverine measurements of sediment and solute transport give empirical basin-scale estimates of bed-load, suspended-sediment, and silicate-solute fluxes for 100,000 km2 of northwestern California
