These documents and reports contain past CZ science questions asked by the CZO community and are provided as supplementary material in preparation for the International CZO Workshop.
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?
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.
Proposals for the John Wesley Powell Center for Analysis and Synthesis are due January 31, 2016.
