Erosion of old organic carbon in the Mackenzie River Basin
Principal Investigator: Hilton, Robert G
Licensed Year(s): 2019
Summary: The research team will collect a new sample set to better quantify the carbon source, age and fate in one of the largest rivers draining the high latitudes. Based on previous work, the team have identified three priority objectives for sample collection in the Mackenzie River: 1) Collect river depth profile sediment samples across the major changes in the annual hydrograph. 2) Sample paired rive...

Geological carbon in the Mackenzie River Basin: Sources and sinks of atmospheric carbon dioxide
Principal Investigator: Hilton, Robert G
Licensed Year(s): 2017 2013 2011 2010 2009
Summary: The objective of this study are to quantify the amount of chemical weathering that takes place in the Mackenzie River Basin, to quantify how much weathering of silicate rocks is done by carbonic acid versus sulfuric acid, and to quantify the chemical weathering of fossil organic carbon. The overall aim is therefore to assess the carbon balance of the whole river basin and to place constraints on ...
