This extract of the SCOPE/UNEP project ``Transport of Carbon and Minerals in Major World Rivers, Lakes, and Estuaries'' provides a comprehensive overview of the biogeochemistry of major rivers and their role in the biogeochemical cycles of its life-supporting animals for the first time. Rivers are viewed by continent or under certain scientific aspects. Concrete data on the chemistry and fluxes of major world rivers are given in addition to a more theoretical approach to the riverine system.
