Summary

Water samples were collected biweekly from the Chena River, Alaska, during 2005-2006 for analysis of dissolved organic carbon (DOC), dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC), total dissolved carbohydrate (TCHO), including monosaccharide (MCHO) and polysaccharide (PCHO), particulate organic carbon (POC) and its isotopic compositions, and Si(OH) sub(4). Carbon species exhibit strong temporal variations with elevated DOC, POC, and TCHO but depleted DIC and Si(OH) sub(4) during the spring freshet and decreased DOC, POC, and TCHO but elevated DIC and Si(OH) sub(4) concentrations under winter ice. Organic matter is mostly derived from surface soil leaching, whereas DIC and Si(OH) sub(4) are associated with groundwater and mineral layer leaching. [...]
