[A-OS15] Freshwater discharge through rivers and estuaries to the ocean
Mon. May 27, 2019 5:15 PM - 6:30 PM Poster Hall (International Exhibition Hall8, Makuhari Messe)
convener:Shinichiro Kida(Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University), Dai Yamazaki(Institute of Industrial Sciences, The University of Tokyo), Yosuke Alexandre Yamashiki(Earth & Planetary Water Resources Assessment Laboratory Graduate School of Advanced Integrated Studies in Human Survivability Kyoto University), Humio Mitsudera(Institute of Low Temperature Science, Hokkaido University)
The water cycle from land to the ocean involves complex dynamics of rivers and buoyancy driven flows in estuaries and the ocean. Recent progress in satellite observations and numerical models are beginning to illuminate how this water cycle occurs on various time scales globally and regionally. This session welcomes various process studies that investigate the dynamics and material circulation related to the freshwater cycle from land to the ocean such as surface runoff, river transport, estuarine circulation, and coastal river plumes based on numerical, observational, or theoretical studies.
