Brussels 4-8th July: International Conference on Environmental Geochemistry and Health

This is my pleasure to announce the coming event from 4th to 8th July in Brussels, Belgium:

The 32nd International Conference on Environmental Geochemistry and Health, with the following themes:
Theme 1 – Dust and Aerosol: Environmental records of Anthropogenic Activities and Climate Changes
Theme 2 – Isotopes and Chemical Speciation: Tracing Transfer Processes in the Critical Zone
Theme 3 – Geochemistry and Health

CZO SAVI Summer Interns Program - Deadline March 21st

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?
