Record #117221:

Spatial patterns of geochemical denudation in a Colorado alpine environment / T. Nelson Caine.

Title: Spatial patterns of geochemical denudation in a Colorado alpine environment / T. Nelson Caine.
Author(s): Caine, T. Nelson.
Date: 1992.
Publisher: Chichester: John Wiley & Sons
In: Periglacial geomorphology. Proceedings of the 22nd Annual Binghamton Symposium in Geomorphology. (1992.),
Abstract: Up to 10 years of discharge and water quality records from site in Colorado Front Range define consistent spatial pattern of geochemical denudation. Solute yields are low but exceed by order of magnitude rates of suspended sediment transport in basin. Geochemical denudation rates vary spatially, being highest where winter snow accumulation is greatest. Within these subcatchments, spatial variability of same magnitude may be predicted from local water budget and is supported by rock weathering studies. Results suggest that solute removal from sites of greatest snow accumulation is important in maintaining nivation hollows.
