dc.description.abstractBicarbonate (HCO3) the predominant form of dissolved inorganic carbon in natural waters, originates mostly from watershed mineral weathering. On time scales of decades to centuries, riverine fluxes of HCO3 to the oceans and subsequent reactions affect atmospheric CO2, lobal climate and ocean pH. This review summarizes controls on the production of HCO3 from chemical weathering and its transport into river systems. The availability of minerals and weathering agents (carbonic, sulfuric, and nitric acids) in the weathering zone interact to control HCO3 production, and water throughput controls HCO3 transport into rivers. Human influences on HCO3 fluxes include climate warming, acid precipitation, mining, concrete use, and agricultural fertilization and liming. We currently cannot evaluate the net result of human influences on a global scale but HCO3 fluxes are clearly increasing in some major rivers as shown here for much of the United States. This increase could be partly a return to pre‐industrial HCO3 fluxes as anthropogenic acidification has been mitigated in the United States, but elsewhere around the world anthropogenic acidification could be leading to decreased concentrations and fluxes.en_US
