EP31A:
International Critical Zone Research: Status, Networking, and Challenges Posters


Session ID#: 8692

Session Description:
Recently, several activities in Europe, China and the US have been initiated to develop and establish an international network of CZOs and to define an overarching research questions for critical zone research. These initiatives are follow ups of the first science CZO conference that took place in Delaware, 2011. Present activities target the national and EU-wide realignment and connection of both existing and proposed structures and programs. The session aims at presenting ongoing critical zone research, the challenges its encounters and the status of international collaboration activities thereby focussing on examples of bi- or multilateral projects within CZ Science. We foster contributions dealing with understanding and predicting critical zone response to land-use and climate change on the catchment scale. Of particular interest are hill slope dynamics based on shallow subsurface structure, caused by geomorphological, hydrological and pedological processes, combined with or steering biogeochemical cycles and weathering within the vadose zone.
