Short TitleDeltas and estuaries
Main ConvenerNameYoshiki Saito

AffiliationState Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research, East China Normal University
Session LanguageEE
ScopeThis session has foci on morphodynamics, material cycling, and sustainability for deltas and estuaries. We invites contributions that advance research on deltas and estuaries as complex river-mouth systems from modern and ancient examples, and develop integrated frameworks for delta & estuary dynamics modeling on various temporal and spatial scales from studies of coastal evolution over the Quaternary to small-scale sediment/material transport processes and also studies based on field observations, numerical simulation and flume studies, and also contributions that promote data collection and sharing for advancing science and local solutions, consider policy and governance issues linked to the sustainable development of deltas and estuaries, and use in-situ and satellite data for guiding modeling and risk assessment.
