There is a U.S. Department of Energy workshop occurring in late January on coordinated, open watershed science
The Susquehanna Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory (SSHCZO) was established to investigate the form, function, and dynamics of the critical zone developed on sedimentary rocks in the Appalachian Mountains in central Pennsylvania. When first established, the SSHCZO encompassed only the Shale Hills catchment, a 0.08-km2 subcatchment within Shaver’s Creek watershed. The SSHCZO has now grown to include 120 km2 of the Shaver’s Creek watershed.

Data Science and Geochemistry: Applying Data-driven Approach in Geochemistry-centric Studies
Abstract. Collaborations between biologists and geologists are key to understanding and projecting how landscapes function and change over time. Such collaborations are stimulated by on-going scientific developments, advances in instrumentation and technology, and the growing recognition that environmental problems necessitate interdisciplinary investigation.
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.
