Meetings: Salinity Session at 2019 Fall AGU

December 9-13, 2019
San Francisco, CA USA
Please join us at the upcoming AGU Fall Meeting 2019 for our session The global water cycle: coupling and exchanges between the ocean, land, and atmosphere. The conference runs Monday to Friday 9-13 December 2019, San Francisco, California, USA. View posters here.

This session highlights water cycle research that describes the linkages between the ocean, atmosphere, and land hydrology. Contributions are invited on all aspects of water cycle research including analyses undertaken using in situ and spaceborne observations from current (e.g., SMAP, SMOS, GRACE-FO, GPM, GCOM-W), past (e.g., Aquarius, TRMM, GRACE), and future (e.g., SWOT, CIMR) satellite missions, estimates based on numerical models, data assimilation systems, as well as climate model projections and theoretical contributions. We particularly welcome studies that consider multiple realms (the ocean, atmosphere, land surface and subsurface), and provide compelling evidence for linkages between these, describing coherent water cycle variability and change. We welcome global and regional assessments across these interfaces, and contributions that demonstrate what needs to be observed to ensure that long-term changes in the water cycle are accurately quantified.
