Tim White and I are organizing a session on “Critical Zone Processes, Function, and Resiliency: Challenges and Opportunities” (Theme #5), please consider submitting an abstract!
NE-GSA is in Burlington, VT, March 18-20th 2018. Abstract submission deadline is December 12th 2017.
Look for more info here: https://www.geosociety.org/GSA/Events/Section_Meetings/GSA/Sections/ne/2...
Here is a brief description of our session, you will see it is quite general: The Critical Zone (CZ) spans from the top of the vegetative canopy to the actively cycled groundwater and provides life sustaining services, however, the Anthropocene poses challenges to the sustainability of the CZ. We encourage contributions that investigate the CZ with a focus on CZ functions and/or resilience and stresses related to the Anthropocene.
Hope to see you in Burlington!
Julia and Tim
