I've also listed and tagged these articles on my CiteULike page. Following tags or other CiteULike users who have listed these articles on their libraries may lead to interesting, related research from others.

Finally, there's my 2004 Ph.D. thesis:
Isotopic constraints on sources and cycling of riverine dissolved inorganic carbon in the Amazon basin. School of Oceanography, University of Washington. Seattle, Washington. 241 pp. [pdf (3.1MB)]
I still have some material from here that I need to publish, specially that focusing specifically on DIC.
