Various phenomena of plasma-wall interactions during long duration discharges in TRIAM-1M are investigated from macroscopic and microscopic viewpoints. It is found that the density dependence of the hydrogen neutral flux decay length is not very sensitive to the density (i.e. ne-0.2 ). Neutral transport through the scrape-off layer is important for structural formation of hydrogen recycling. The hydrogen retention in the co-deposited layer, which was obtained using a material probe during long duration discharges, is consistent with the global wall pumping rate estimated from particle balance analysis. The wall temperature and co-deposition play important roles on hydrogen re-emission and hydrogen absorption, respectively. Oxygen impurities should affect the erosion and deposition properties of the plasma-facing wall as well as the hydrogen retention property of the co-deposited layer. The co-deposition of hydrogen with molybdenum and the oxygen impurities both play important roles in the hydrogen recycling.
