Complex Interfaces Under Change: Sea – River – Groundwater – Lake

C. Cudennec, M. Kravchishina, J. Lewandowski, D. Rosbjerg & P. Woodworth

The hydrosphere is dynamic across the major compartments of the Earth system: the atmosphere, the oceans and seas, the land surface water, and the groundwater within the strata below the two last compartments. The global geography of the hydrosphere essentially depends on thermodynamic and mechanical processes that develop within this structure. Water-related processes at the interfaces between the compartments are complex, depending both on the interface itself, and on the characteristics of the interfaced compartments.
Various aspects of global change directly or indirectly impact these interfaces and interfaced compartments and processes. Climate, sea-level, oceanographic currents and hydrological processes are all affected, while anthropogenic changes are often intense in the geographic settings corresponding to such interfaces.

This volume combines selected papers from two symposia, HP2 and HP3, held during the 2013 IAHS-IAPSO-IASPEI Assembly in Gothenburg, Sweden:

HP2: Land–Ocean Interaction – Hydrodynamics and Biogeochemistry, and
HP3: Implications of Sea Level Change for the Coastal Zone.
