Carbon fluxes across countries and regions from inland water sources

Inland water carbon flux estimates for the present day showing contributions in Tg C yr-1 from 3 inland sources (Rivers, Lakes, and Estuaries) for 3 latitude bands and 6 continental regions. Stacked bars show breakdown by country for each region. Data sources: Hastie et al. (2018), Lauerwald et al. (2015), Laruelle et al. (2013), and Raymond et al. (2013).

One terragram (TgC y⁻¹) is one million ton of carbon per year.
Total inland water carbon fluxes: 1292.0 Tg C yr-1
