Probing the Earth surface processes on a continental or global scale requires the studies of interactions between geology, hydrology, geochemistry, climate, ecosystems and human activities. These studies in turn help elucidate the causes for past geological events, and contribute to more accurate predictions of the future climatic and environmental changes. Due to the complexity of the surface processes, physics-based modeling approaches in some cases might have limited power to reproduce empirical estimates. With the accumulation of accessible, reliable, and sustainable Earth data, data-driven models of Earth surface processes become feasible. We welcome presentations of studies based on data of continental and global scales, including 1) spatial-temporal geo-statistics on environmental geochemical cycling; 2) spatial-temporal exploration of land-ocean interaction; 3) data mining and machine learning application on the interaction between natural surface processes and human activities; 4) multidisciplinary research on a wide range of topics related to critical zone systems.
