Abstract

Long-term weathering rates using Zr in soil (alpine podzols and peaty podzols), and current weathering rates calculated from precipitation and stream water sampling over 6 months are presented. Annual chemical weathering rates of 45.0 and 48.6 meq/m² (Ca, Mg, K and Na) were obtained for long-term and current rates, resp. The comparison of the two methods is discussed.
