AGU Fall Meeting H130: Use-inspired catchment science and scientifically grounded watershed management

Dear CZEN Network,

Please see the information below on our session at the 2017 AGU Fall Meeting in New Orleans.  

The session will showcase basic critical zone science that informs best practice in watershed management.  

The session is co-convened by myself, Heather Gall (Penn State), Ciaran Harman (JHU), and Sally Thompson (UC Berkeley).

The U.S. CZO PIs, National Office, and a Steering Committee representative met in Boulder, Colorado in Feburary 2016 for a Strategic planning workshop. The resulting strategy can be found attached below or on

Survey results on collaborations with US CZO

Hi all,

About a year ago we collaborated with Critical Zone National Office to deploy a survey on how the Earth Science community perceives collaborative opportunities with the CZOs in the US. Our goal was to identify obstacles that impede collaboration and to solicit thoughts on how to remove identified obstacles. We finally have the results written up for you (attached) and welcome comments and discussions emerging from the survey.
