Critical zone sessions at CMWR conference, Saint Malo, France

The 22nd CMWR conference (Computational Methods in Water Resources) will place a special emphasis on the link between data and models, in particular in the context of critical zone systems. The conference will take place in the coastal city of Saint Malo (France) from June 3 to 7 2018. The deadline for abstract submission is November 22 2017.

The session most closely related to the critical zone are the following:

Tenure-track Assistant Professor of Geology (earth, energy resources, geobiology) position open at the College of Charleston

The candidate will hold a Ph.D. in Geosciences with research and teaching interests in geology. The department is seeking a field-oriented geoscientist who has a proven record of success teaching introductory geology courses.

Special integrated research session at AAG on wetlands and meadows

CZEN members going to American Association of Geographers (AGG) next spring on April 10-14, 2018 in New Orleans should be interested in this special session. We have room for a couple more papers.

Session Id: 11879

Title: Wetlands and Meadows: Integrated Research in Geomorphology, Soils, Hydrology, Biogeography and Microclimatology


Jin et al. 2017 REE mobility and fractionation during shale weathering along a climate gradient

We systematically investigated six soil profiles developed on a climosequence of gray shale to constrain the mobility and fractionation of rare earth elements (REE) during chemical weathering processes. In addition, one site developed on black shale (Marcellus Formation) was included to document REE behaviors in organic-rich versus organic-poor shale end members under the same environmental conditions.
