Radiogenic and reliable isotopes are used largely within the earth sciences to figure out the a while of rocks, meteorites and archeological items, and as tracers to appreciate geological and environmental procedures.

1), which are relatively labile, to identify the degradable fraction of fluvial POC, and concluded that between ϳ5% and ϳ30% of the POC carried by the world’s rivers is labile in character. This estimate was later modified by Ittekkot & Laane (1991) to between 12% and 47%, with proteins (range, ϳ7–29%) exceeding carbohydrates (range, 5–17%). Ittekkot & Laane (1991) pointed out that labile POC decreased as the concentrations of TSM increased, with TSM in the range 1–150 mg l-1 having an average labile content of ϳ35%, whereas for those with concentrations >150 mg l-1 the labile fraction falls to ϳ15%.

Anthropogenic inputs also can influence the concentrations of trace metals in some river systems. 3 The chemical composition of RPM from different rivers systems shows considerable variation, some of which may result from climate-induced weathering intensity differences in catchment regions. Crystalline (residual), metal oxide and organic host fractions are the principal particulate trace-metal carrier phases in rivers that receive their trace elements mainly from natural sources. 4 There is a catchment-related pattern in the fluvial transport of POC and DOC by rivers, the highest concentrations being found in rivers draining swamp regions and the lowest in those flowing over glacial and alpine environments.

The concentrations of particulate material and complexing ligands, redox potential, pH), so that during the global transportation cycle the mobile surface-associated elements can undergo considerable speciation migration. 8, from which it can be seen that the concentrations range from as low as <1 mg l-1 to ϳ50 mg l-1. A number of authors have found a climate-related pattern in DOC concentrations in rivers. For example, Thurman (1985) listed the following estimates for the average, and ranges (in parentheses), of DOC concentrations (mg l-1) in a number of climatic zones: small rivers in Arctic and alpine environments taiga cool temperate warm temperate arid wet tropical rivers draining swamps and wetlands 2 (1–5) 10 (8–25) 3 (2–8) 7 (3–15) 3 (2–10) 6 (2–15) 25 (5–60) Thus, the lowest values are found for rivers draining glacial and alpine environments and the highest for those draining swamp and wetland regions.
