Abstract Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) at the interface of land and sea is likely an important part of the global hydrological cycle and has started to attract the attention of a growing interdisciplinary scientific community. Independent of its composition, SGD is of particular relevance for estuarine and coastal areas, since it provides a direct pathway for element and water flow at the connection between land and ocean. Freshwater discharge rates and age may be highly variable, depending on the local hydrogeology. Since SGD may be enriched in nutrients, dissolved inorganic carbon, methane, and metals, it is linked to society-relevant issues, such as coastal eutrophication and the development of harmful algal blooms, the development of hypoxia, greenhouse effect, as well as ocean acidification to mention a few. Due to the direct measurement of the SGD composition and fluxes on small scales, however, biogeochemical and physical contributions to the adjacent coastal water column can be deduced.
