From Watersheds to Oceans: Physical, Ecological, and Population Models that Cross BoundariesĀ I

Session ID#: 11528

Session Description:
The goal of this session is to provide a platform for coastal oceanographers and hydrogeologists studying land-ocean interface for combining efforts in establishing the current state of our knowledge on magnitude and effects of submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) on global scale. Despite the large amount of regional SGD data collected in the last two decades, attempts of upscaling of SGD have been particularly difficult because of the large temporal and spatial heterogeneity of fluxes. However, the translation from local scale to global scale is critical in assessing the effects of land-ocean constituent fluxes and feedbacks in the ocean system. The lack of interactions between the two scientific communities working at this interface, coastal oceanographers and hydrogeologists, had contributed to a delay in this important matter. From terrestrial hydrology and geochemistry perspectives, modeling continental scale SGD can advance our understanding and analytical capabilities relating to terrestrial hydrological and biogeochemical cycles. To address this subject, the session invites contributions ranging from local field observations to global model approaches of land-ocean matter fluxes. However, the contributors are encouraged to focus on the upscaling of local observations to larger scales, or the downscaling of large scale information.
