CZ and Society 2017

A primary tenet of this webinar series is that to achieve environmental sustainability, society must first understand the CZ system and the coupled physical, chemical, and biological processes and services of the CZ. Understanding how such processes operate, especially those that are of value to society, with and without the presence of humanity, and how they may be altered due to global climate and land-use change, is essential for developing environmental management protocols and sustainable resource-consuming practices.
