[A-CG07] Continental-Oceanic Mutual Interaction: Global-scale Material Circulation through River Runoff
Wed. May 27, 2015 2:15 PM - 3:00 PM
Convener:*Yosuke Yamashiki(Global Water Resources Assessment Laboratory - Yamashiki Laboratory Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability Kyoto University), Yukio Masumoto(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Swadhin Behera(Climate Variation Predictability and Applicability Research Program Research Institute for Global Change/JAMSTEC, 3173-25 Showa-machi, Yokohama 236-0001), Yasumasa Miyazawa(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Toshio Yamagata(Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology), Kaoru Takara(Disaster Prevention Research Institute, Kyoto University), Chair:Yosuke Yamashiki(Global Water Resources Assessment Laboratory - Yamashiki Laboratory)
The main purpose of this session is to promote discussion on mutual interaction between Continental and Oceanic zone through water circulation. The global-scale material circulation induced by River runoff through oceanic general circulation is established as one of the major topics on Continental-Oceanic Interaction, where the ENSO / IOD influence into continental climate as major topics on Oceanic-Continental Interaction. Numerical simulation and field observation of radionuclide transport from continental zone into ocean and its potential impact, material intrusion through rivers into lakes and estuaries: such themes are also considered as important topics of this session.
