The Belmont Forum is pleased to announce the launch of a collaborative research call on the theme: Towards Sustainability of Soils and Groundwater for Society. The goal of this CRA is to produce the necessary knowledge and propose solutions to maintain well-functioning soils and groundwater systems in the Critical Zone, or rehabilitate them where degraded, through:
A new postdoctoral researcher position is available at Washington State University in Vancouver, WA, in Urban Ecohydrology, Global Environmental Change, or a related field such as Urban Environmental Biophysics/Ecophysiology, Urban Environmental Modeling, or Remote Sensing Data Analytics. (This is in addition to the first such position, previously advertised in 2019.)
n light of disruptions from COVID-19, we are considering how to navigate the network activities in the short term, in particular, our first workshop scheduled for August.
Interested in a geomorph post-doc looking at land-use practices? Apply for the USGS Mendenhall to map, monitor & model landscapes altered by human distrubances--be that fires in California or grazing practices in Hawaii. You will have the potential for tech partnerships w/ NASA & Carnegie Mellon, but will also need field and mapping skills. You will be working with geomorphologists and hydrologists at our Moffett Field/Menlo Park offices.
