Amazon River   87Sr/86Sr 0.7109             Strontium isotopic content of major world rivers. All values obtained using standard mass specrometric techniques and used to determine global runoff of strontium. Palmer & Edmond 1989
Amazon River   d6Li -29.4   1.5         Chan et al. 1992
Amazon River 3 d6Li -21.6             Average values of Lithium Isotopic flux from major world rivers into the ocean, which in total account for roughly one third of the global runoff. Lithium Isotopic flux values are measured according to the ID-TIMS method (Isotope Dilution and Thermal Ionization Mass Spectromerty). Huh et al. 1998
Amazon River 3 Li 0.11             Chan et al. 1992
Amazon River 3 Li 96.5             Average values of Lithium flux from major world rivers into the ocean, which in total account for roughly one third of the global runoff. Lithium flux values are measured according to the ID-TIMS method (Isotope Dilution and Thermal Ionization Mass Spectromerty). Huh et al. 1998
Amazon River 88 Ra       200 730     Radium 226 activity of the Amazon river in dpm per liter. 226Ra concentrations of all rivers were determined according to the 222Rn emanation method from Broecker 1964 and Key 1983. Moore & Scott 1986 Moore & Edmond 1984
Key et al. 1985
Amazon River 38 Sr 0.32             Strontium content of major world rivers as measured in micromoles per kilogram. All values obtained using standard mass specrometric techniques and used to determine riverine flux of strontium. Palmer & Edmond 1989
