Today (April 2, 2011) I received my copy of the book of
"River Discharge to the Coastal Ocean-A Global Synthesis" by Milliman and Farnsworth (2011).
What a river bible! I will update this online database (water and sediment dischrage part) gradually and accordingly.
How much suspended sediment discharged
collectively by worldwide rivers to the global ocean?
Based on Milliman and Farnsworth (2011)'s new estimation (see the
figure below), the answer is 19,000 × 106 t/yr,
simply to say 19 billion tons per year.
Here, we provide a more dynamic and detail global river and delta
database on an interactive Google Map. After you log in, please click one of the river
irons in the left-side Google
window, you will be able to see more detailed information.
