CZEN is a network of people as well as a network of field sites. CZEN strives to foster interdisciplinary research spanning all aspects of the Critical Zone and to forge bridges between researchers from around the world. Everyone engaged in Critical Zone research and related fields are encouraged to join CZEN by registering on this site. Once you are a registered user you will have the ability to interact with other members and also have access to posted datasets, field protocols, sampling methodologies and other content.


To facilitate collaboration, registered CZEN users can create their own spaces on this site. These spaces, called "groups" can be used as collaborative environments to share information and materials. Examples of group spaces are working groups, committees, classes and seminars, meetings, tools and method discussions, and other needs. Access to a group space may be open to all registered users or restricted to those users granted membership in the group.
