Summary

Annual export of major and trace solutes are determined for the Yukon River based on summing 42 tributary contributions. First we show that annual discharge of the Yukon River can be computed by summing calculated annual discharges from 42 tributaries using a previously published regional regression equation. Next, annual loads for 11 solutes are determined by combining annual discharge with point measurements of solute concentrations in tributary river water. Based on the sum of tributary contributions we find that the Yukon River discharges approximately 211 km super(3) yr super(-1) of water and 33 million metric tons of dissolved solids each year at Pilot Station, AK. Disch arged solutes are dominated by cations calcium and magnesium [...]
