Determine the magnitude, seasonality, and geographic distribution of mine burial rates, as a function of landward and seaward forces. The central premise is that the nature of upland drainage basin characteristics including human forcings defines the spatial distribution, timing, frequency and intensity of river-dominated fluxes of suspended sediments. Develop a set of quantitative estimates of continental-scale suspended sediment flux that can be derived from currently available global biogeophysical data sets. Determine the accuracy of these simulated outputs through comparison to measured fluxes.
