Session description:
 The session provides a forum for discussions of recent developments in the study of physical processes along polar coasts, in the nearshore zone, and over polar continental shelves. The session encourages submissions integrating several disciplines over the entire coastal tract, from backshore areas to offshore shelf environments. Special attention will be given to material and energy exchanges at the land-ocean interface and on the shelf driven by nearshore and offshore currents, tides, as well as surface and internal waves. Recent reports on the theory, modeling, and observations of erosion, sediment transport, and coastal morphodynamics are encouraged, as are presentations of interdisciplinary research linked to biogeochemistry.
