Abstract

Located at the midpoint of the Asian "airborne dust corridor'', Lake Qinghai receives substantial dust annually, which may impact the biogeochemical cycles of the system. In order to determine quantitatively the flux and chemical contributions of dust to Lake Qinghai sediment, dust samples were collected monthly at two sites surrounding the lake from June 2009 to May 2011. The results demonstrate similar chemical compositions of dust samples to the local loess, implying strong representativeness of regional dust. The average dust deposition flux is 265.7 +/- 55.0 g/m(2)/a, constituting 56.6 +/- 11.7% of the modern sediment, approximating to previous estimates (similar to 65%). Contributions of dust-derived elements in the sediment differ substantially, with a minimum of 16.7% for Sr and a maximum of 83.9% for Cu. Among these elements, the contribution of lithophile elements (Na, Al, K, Ti, Mn, Fe and Rb) is close to that of the bulk dust; the contributions of mobile elements (Mg, Ca and Sr) are low, only 16.7% (Sr)-26.1% (Mg), whereas potentially harmful metals (Cu, Zn and Pb) have high contributions (70.3-83.9%). Seasonal variations of elemental inputs indicate that springtime contributions dominate the annual dust fluxes for all elements into the sediment, in agreement with the high dust flux in spring. These observations not only quantify the contribution of dust to the sediment of Lake Qinghai, but also highlight the important role of dust in the accumulation of various elements in the sediment, especially for potentially harmful metals.
