We invite you to join an interactive discussion on challenges and opportunities for integrating terrestrial observation network data into models being held Wednesday, Nov. 8th at 9 AM MST/5 PM CEST. The webinar on will begin with a presentation outlining results from a cross-network survey conducted by the International Soil Modeling Consortium (ISMC) on data-model integration in US and international LTER and CZO networks. After the presentation, we want to hear from YOU - modelers, empiricists, resource managers, decision makers - what are the frontier issues in this area? We will have an open discussion with ample time for exchange of ideas. Roland Baatz and Kris Van Looy (Forschungszentrum Juelich and ISMC) will lead the discussion, with input from CZO, LTER, and NEON participants. This discussion is in preparation foir the joint CZO-LTER-NEON-ISMC workshop: Modeling the Critical Zone; State of the Art, Data Integration, and Frontiers being held February 13-15, 2018 in Boulder, Colorado.
Mark your calendars for Weds Nov 8th, 9 AM MST/5 PM CEST.
