Short summary
This paper investigated the spatial and temporal variations of pCO2 in the Yellow River watershed. While the pCO2 responded exponentially to total suspended solids (TSS) export when the TSS concentration was less than 100 kg m-3, it decreased and remained stable thereafter if the TSS concentration was greater than 100 kg m-3. The average pCO2 for the watershed was estimated at 2810±1985 μatm, indicating a large potential for CO2 evasion.
