AGU Session: How water limitation impacts ecosystems and catchments

Dear Colleagues, 
Please consider our new session on how water limitation impacts terrestrial cycling of water, energy, and biogeochemicals.  We invite contributions from both hydrological (catchment) and ecological perspectives.  We are excited to hear from invited speakers Ben Poulter (NASA) and Mike Goulden (UC Irvine).  
You may find session details below or at 

CZOs at AGU 2015

The NSF-funded Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) and National Office (CZONO) will be well represented at the upcoming annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco (Dec. 14-18). Over 150 posters and presentations will be made by this community in numerous sessions spanning Monday through Friday of the meeting -- see attached agenda for a list of these presentations.

Upcoming 2015 DOM Fluorescence Workshop at CU-Boulder

The Mcknight lab group will be holding a DOM Fluorescence Workshop on November 6th and 7th, followed by a special session on the 8th at University of Colorado at Boulder. The two-day workshop is for students and scientists working on projects involving fluorescence analysis of dissolved organic matter. The special session on Sunday, Nov. 8th Session focuses on how on creating your own PARAFAC model.

Last call - Symposium "Observing Ecosystem Transition"

Understanding ecosystem transitions is more important than ever and critical zone observatories shall contribute to this issue. The Symposium "Observing Ecosystem Transition" (28 - 29 September 2015) will discuss regime shifts during ecosystem succession and the role of critical zone observatories. The conference will take place at the Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus (Germany) and includes an excursion to the Chicken Creek critical zone observatory.

B052: Multi-Scale and Integrated Sensing for Watershed Science

American Geophysical Union -- Session ID# 8983 Description: Gaining a predictive understanding of dynamic ecosystem and hydrological processes in watersheds involves complex surface and subsurface hydrology, biogeochemistry, and vegetation dynamics. Heterogeneous properties and responses are needed in sufficiently detailed spatial and temporal resolution. However, properties and responses must be averaged, translated, and/or upscaled to integrate over the entire watershed or watersheds. While there has been some progress towards developing multi-scale approaches to understand and predict watershed-scale behavior, the community still struggles to extrapolate knowledge beyond the point scale. However, advances in technology and interdisciplinary cooperation are changing this trend.
