Legacy N: Biogeochemical, Hydrologic and Environmental Perspectives

Abstract deadline for Soil Science Society of America Annual Meeting 2019 – (San Diego, California. January 6th-9th) is approaching!

Please consider submitting to Legacy N: Biogeochemical, Hydrologic and Environmental Perspectives. This is an interdisciplinary session and a critical zone approach is encouraged.

Abstract Deadline – August 7th 2018

Legacy N: Biogeochemical, Hydrologic and Environmental Perspectives

The upcoming Soil Science Society of America 2019 'Soils across latitudes' meeting in San Diego, California will include a topical session on Legacy N: Biogeochemical, Hydrologic and Environmental Perspectives. Legacy nitrogen in soils, sediment and surface/groundwaterbodies is increasingly recognized as an impediment to water quality goals, and remains difficult to quantify at a variety of scales.

Postdoctoral position open for data analyst of cross CZO network water and energy fluxes

A Postdoctoral Research Associate is sought to conduct research spanning the Critical Zone Observatory network (http://www.criticalzone.org/ ). This network of nine heavily instrumented landscapes is generating large datasets and deep insights into the nature of the water and energy fluxes through Earth’s living terrestrial surface. The successful applicant will be supervised by Noah Molotch (CU Boulder)   and Ciaran Harman (Johns Hopkins University) to work with a team of scientists from across the network. They will synthesize these data, and answer two fundamental questions about the relationship between critical zone architecture and hydrologic function: 1) How does critical zone structure influence hydrologic processes and functions? 2) Do hydrologic processes and critical zone structures co-evolve? They will address these questions through an inter-comparison of 1) perceptual models (in the sense of a model based on words, description, diagrams, etc.) of each CZO, capturing what is understood about their internal structure and hydrologic processes, and 2) quantitative hydrologic signatures that capture essential differences in the CZOs’ hydrologic functions.  The initial position is for one year, with the possibility of extension.


Finse Alpine Research Center


60° 35' 36.528" N, 7° 31' 28.578" E
Brief Site Description: 
A high-Alpine, sub-Arctic field station operated by the University of Oslo
Detailed Site Description: 


Finse Alpine Research Centre is owned by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences of the University of Oslo. Even though the University of Oslo is the offi cial owner, state funding for building the station was provided on the condition that the Universities of Bergen and Oslo have equal rights to the use of the station for research and education. The station is managed by the Department of Biology, University of Oslo.


The Alpine Research Center is located 1.5 km east of the Finse railway station on the north-western corner of the Hardangervidda mountain plateau in south central Norway (60°36’ N, 30’ E). The closest town is Geilo, about 50 km to the east. Finse lies in the low alpine zone at 1200 meters a.s.l. and about 250 meters above the tree line. The snow-free period is normally between mid-July and October. The station is located just outside Hallingskarvet National Park to the north and east and Skaupsjøen-Hardangerjøkulen landscape protection area to the south and west. The Hardangerjøkulen glacier is 4 km south of the station.
