T6. Critical Zone Science in Karst and Carbonate Terrains

Chris Groves, Matthew D. Covington, Alan Fryar, C. Zhu
To advance understanding of relevant processes, we seek contributions that integrate geochemistry, biogeochemistry, hydrogeology, geophysics, and geomorphology, as well as those that employ isotope and modeling techniques, to examine karst critical zone processes.

T50. Processes and Feedbacks in the Critical Zone

Alison Anders, Martha C. Eppes
Processes and feedbacks occurring from the top of the canopy to the bottom of the bedrock weathering zone. Field, instrumentation, simulation, and/or modeling data for geosphere, pedosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and/or biosphere processes are welcome.

Geomorphology | Soils | Quaternary Geology

T96. Large Watershed to National Scale Data and Science for Water Management

E. Randall Bayless
The topical session will explore large watershed and national-scale water management models, creation of standardized input variables, and the applications as a way to improve coordination and collaboration among scientists and improve methods.

T172. Critical Zone Science-Bio-Geo Interactions across Environmental Gradients and Time

Bryan G. Moravec, Zsuzsanna Balogh-Brunstad
Critical Zone Science is a complex and interdisciplinary field. We solicit contributions that address the complex relationships among biota and minerals/rocks/soils on various spatial and temporal scales, including the heterogeneity of the studied systems.

P1. Earth As a Big Data Puzzle: Advancing Information Frontiers in Geoscience

Anders Noren, Leslie Hsu
What new discoveries would you make if you could easily access any geoscience data and vastly reduce time spent on data manipulations? This grand vision requires a diverse range of steps to build the software, practices, linkages, culture, and other resources that together form the ecosystem for data-driven geoscience. This session will be a forum for conversation on active projects addressing community data priorities. Learn about new tools, meet researchers and developers, forge new collaborations, and look toward the information frontier in geoscience.
