Abstract: Sampling of surface water at seven stations along the Sungai Balok,Pahang was conducted from 2013 to 2015 to investigate the distribution of dissolvedrare earth elements (REE) in river systems. The whole concentration of ΣREE in the dissolved phaserecorded during this study ranged from 368 to 9121 pmol•L−1 with a mean of 2328 ± 1442 pmol•L−1 thatwas dominantly influenced by the concentration of Ce ranging from 84 to 3237 pmol•L−1.Similarly, the large ranged value of La YbN (0.69 - 11.57)might be due to the fluctuating rainfall events during samplings as well asinput from lithogenic sources that suggests the influence of monsoon events.The highly significant statistical correlation of Al and Fe (R2 =0.65; p th January 2014 and 1st November 2014 with 586.5 pmol•cm−2 and 643.4 pmol•cm−2,accordingly. Subsequently, results showed an increasing flux of Ce occurring inthe dissolved phase from November 2013 to January 2014 and November 2014 toJanuary 2015, with 39.14 nmol•cm−2•yr−1 and 59.78 nmol•cm−2•yr−1,respectively.
