ScopeThe water cycle from land to the ocean involves complex dynamics of rivers and buoyancy driven flows through estuaries and along coasts. Recent progress in satellite observations and numerical models are beginning to illuminate how this water cycle occurs on the global scale and the regional scale. We welcome studies that investigate various phenomena related to the freshwater cycle from land to the ocean such as surface runoff, river flow variability, estuarine circulation including delta and salt marsh, and coastal river plumes based on numerical, observational, or theoretical studies. This session will be jointly held with the international session "Continental-Oceanic Mutual Interaction: Global-scale Material Circulation through River Runoff".
