We have measured the magnesium (Mg) isotope ratios in 45 rivers including 16 of the largest rivers in the world, covering a range of geologic, tectonic and climatic drainage basin environments. The range in riverine δ26Mg is 2.5‰, half the variation in terrestrial rock. Although the Mg isotopic composition of the source rock is important for small rivers, at a global scale lithology is of limited significance for Mg isotope ratios in rivers. Part of the variability at a global scale may be… CONTINUE READING
