The Geological Society of America Annual Meeting is held in Indianapolis, Indiana, Nov 4-7, 2018. There are three CZ related sessions proposed for the conference this year! See the description below. Please consider submitting an abstract to CZ-related sessions!
Abstract submission deadline is 14 August 2018, 11:59 PM PDT. https://gsa.confex.com/gsa/2018AM/cfp.epl
T6. Critical Zone Science in Karst and Carbonate Terrains
Chris Groves, Matthew D. Covington, Alan Fryar, C. Zhu
GSA Karst Division; GSA Hydrogeology Division; GSA Soils and Soil Processes Interdisciplinary Interest Group; GSA Geobiology & Geomicrobiology Division; GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; National Cave and Karst Research Institute
To advance understanding of relevant processes, we seek contributions that integrate geochemistry, biogeochemistry, hydrogeology, geophysics, and geomorphology, as well as those that employ isotope and modeling techniques, to examine karst critical zone processes.

T50. Processes and Feedbacks in the Critical Zone
Alison Anders, Martha C. Eppes
GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division; GSA Soils and Soil Processes Interdisciplinary Interest Group; GSA Mineralogy, Geochemistry, Petrology, and Volcanology Division
Processes and feedbacks occurring from the top of the canopy to the bottom of the bedrock weathering zone. Field, instrumentation, simulation, and/or modeling data for geosphere, pedosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and/or biosphere processes are welcome.

T172. Critical Zone Science—Bio-Geo Interactions across Environmental Gradients and Time
Bryan G. Moravec, Zsuzsanna Balogh-Brunstad
GSA Soils and Soil Processes Interdisciplinary Interest Group; GSA Geobiology & Geomicrobiology Division; GSA Hydrogeology Division; GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division
Critical Zone Science is a complex and interdisciplinary field. We solicit contributions that address the complex relationships among biota and minerals/rocks/soils on various spatial and temporal scales, including the heterogeneity of the studied systems.
