We focus on water and material transport and cycle in catchment ecosystems. The area includes headwater to coastal or estuarine area. We welcome these new topics in various scales and fields. For example, material transport in soil, slope and catchment scale, suspended material transport interacting with dissolved material, groundwater flow system and material transport, heterogeneity and dynamics, scale up from soil to watershed, effect of human activity and climate change for long period, N and P cycles, contaminant transport from watershed to coastal and ocean areas and its effect, river - groundwater interaction, new tracer methods, catchment ecosystems, and sediment analysis etc.
