From poles to tropics: A multi-biome synthesis investigating the controls on river Si exports

Riverine exports of silicon (Si) directly influence global carbon (C) cycling through the growth of diatoms, ubiquitous autotrophs in marine and freshwater systems, which account for ~25% of global primary production. Rivers play essential roles in processing and supplying the Si necessary for diatom growth, but we have limited knowledge of the controls on river … Continue reading From poles to tropics: A multi-biome synthesis investigating the controls on river Si exports
