Glacial effects on weathering processes: New insights from the elemental and lithium isotopic composition of West Greenland rivers

Abstract:

Greenland is by far the dominant source of glacial runoff to the oceans but the controls on the chemical and isotopic composition of this runoff are poorly known. To better constrain glacial effects on weathering processes, we have conducted elemental and lithium isotope analyses of glacial and non-glacial rivers in gneiss catchments in West Greenland. The glacial rivers have high total suspended solids (0.5 g l- 1) and low total dissolved solids (12 μScm- 1) relative to the non-glacial river...
