CZO SAVI Summer Interns Program

The Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) represent a wide range of environmental and landscape settings. To enable broad understanding of the evolution, function and sustainability of the Critical Zone, the CZOs have begun to articulate scientific questions that are common and have value across the entire CZO network. Those questions are: What controls CZ properties? And processes? What will be the response of CZ structure, and its stores and fluxes, to climate change? And land use change?

CZO SAVI International Scholars Program

In recognition of the global nature of Critical Zone (CZ) science, the NSF has provided funding to the CZ Observatory (CZO) Science Across Virtual Institutes (SAVI) program to enable travel to CZ sites or pre-eminent laboratories overseas to further the investigation of the CZ. This announcement is an open solicitation for applications by graduate students or postgraduates (US citizens or green card holders at US universities only) to receive funds for international travel during 2016.

MS positions available in Critical Zone Carbon dynamics for fall 2016

I have 1-2 MS positions available on TA (RA pending) for this coming fall on projects related to soil and stream water C dynamics. One project will look at spatial patterns in river corridor C characteristics and another will use a comparison of experiments, field sampling and mining of existing data to investigate CZ controls on stream water C. Some background in geology is required for teaching intro geology courses.
