Abstract

This study,(2004–2010, focuses on inter- and intra-annual temporal variations of surface water chemistry, solute fluxes, solute yields and chemical denudation in a steep, cold climate and glacier-fed drainage basin system in the Erdalen fjord landscape. Inter- and intra-annual temporal variations of surface water chemistry, solute gross concentrations, solute gross yields and chemical denudation rates are clearly determined by the combined effects of inter- and intra-annual temporal variations of precipitation, solar radiation and air temperature. Intra-annual temporal variations of surface water total dissolved solids (TDS) values reflect the dilution of base flow from the drainage basin by (i) thermally controlled snowmelt in spring (April–June), (ii) thermally determined glacier melt in summer (July–August), and (iii) more frequent and more intense rainfall events in autumn (September–November). The highest monthly solute gross yields over the year are recorded in spring
