Call for Proposals; USGS Powell Center

The John Wesley Powell Center for Earth System Science Analysis and Synthesis fosters innovative thinking in Earth system science through collaborative synthesis activities. This mission is driven by the growing recognition that synthesis is critical to solving complex problems facing Society. To date, the Center has successfully hosted 36 working groups that have produced 70 pubs, many in top-ranked journals.

Discussion on how to measure the Critical Zone open until Nov. 25

The manuscript, “Designing a Suite of Measurements to Understand the Critical Zone,” by Brantley et al., which details the methodology behind scaling up from measuring “everything everywhere” at Shale Hills to measuring “only what we need” over the greater Shavers Creek watershed, is now available for online public discussion at the journal Earth Surface Dynamics.  The online discussion is open until November 25 2015, and is available at the following link, along with the manuscript and suppl

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.
