Today, more than 40% of the global population lives within coastal areas and population growth near rivers and lakes is significantly higher than in the rest of the words. The river-floodplain and coastal systems are strongly impacted by natural and anthropogenic activities and the climate change effects pose important changes for their sustainable management and preservation of natural resources.  Coastal erosion, seawater intrusion, transport of sediment, groundwater pollution, and over-pumping are just a few of the processes able to alter the quality of these areas.
Geophysical and hydrogeological methodologies offer the tools to explore and monitor coastal and fluvial systems in order to assess their vulnerability and exploitation capacity. The intrinsic complexity of these scenarios is challenging and strongly requires the development of innovative and integrated hydrogeophysical strategies.
This session will be addressed (I) to collect the most advanced and recent geophysical and hydrogeological researches in coastal areas and inland links, (II) to promote innovative and integrated multiscale and multidisciplinary approaches, and (III) to present recent innovations in technologies, instrumentation, and processing strategies for the exploration and monitoring of coastal and fluvial systems.
