Session 16B: Probing the Critical Zone

  The critical zone of the Earth is the thin pellicule of the Earth "between the rocks and sky". Critical Zone processes sustain terrestrial ecosystems, shape landscapes and control linkages between land and water. Quantifying these processes requires studies that address complex biotic/abiotic interactions. The last decade has seen an unprecedented development of integrated studies on the Critical Zone of the Earth, in particular based on Critical Zone Observatories and monitoring facilities. This session will welcome studies that aim to define and understand the main processes operating in the Critical Zone and their couplings. In particular, submissions addressing feedbacks between biogeochemical cycling and chemical weathering are strongly encouraged.

Keynote: Jon Chorover (University of Arizona)

Session Convenors: Corey Lawrence, Sétareh Rad, Heather Buss

Registration and abstract submission are now open
