Abstract Regional seas ( n  = 19), archipelago coasts ( n  = 3) and extended coastal platforms ( n  = 2) are here considered as mega filters of land–ocean linkage through river fluxes. They are differentiated on the basis of morphological characteristics and they correspond to 7.2% of the global ocean area and to 2.4% of its volume. Their catchment characteristics (48 indicators for catchment relief, lithology, climate; river inputs of total suspended solids TSS, total N and dissolved SiO 2… CONTINUE READING
