H086:
Modeling the Critical Zone: Integrating Processes and Data Across Disciplines and Scales





Session ID#: 23400

Session Description:
The Critical Zone (CZ) is the Earth’s skin where climate, geology, ecosystems, and human activities converge. The evolution and function of the CZ are governed by multiple processes (e.g., meteorological, hydrological, geochemical, geomorphological, and biological) over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales. This session aims to showcase contributions that highlight recent model development and applications to develop a predictive understanding of CZ.  We invite abstracts that: 1) demonstrate the synergy between field and modeling efforts; 2) elucidate underlying processes at and across multiple scales; 3) reveal new understanding about the CZ response to changing climate and land use; and 4) synthesize data or test hypotheses across multiple study sites.  The session is intended to serve as an exploration of the breadth of CZ sciences and to facilitate comparison across different sites. We encourage submissions from modeling endeavors within and across disciplines.
