2018 Southeast Friends of the Pleistocene Field Conference

09 Feb 2018

Geophysics, Geochemistry, and Biogeochemistry of the Southern Piedmont Critical Zone

The interdisciplinary Earth and ecological scientists and students of one of the nation’s nine Critical Zone Observatories, the Calhoun CZO, will host the SEFOP (Southeast Friends of the Pleistocene) Field Conference, 23-25 February in and around Cross Keys, South Carolina. The field trip will build on the 2017 SEFOP in nearby Spartanburg County and features the critical zone as the geo-eco-system that spans from the atmosphere to the deepest weathering reactions and aquifers; deep weathering profiles studied in detail by geophysics, geochemists, and biogeochemists; a Piedmont landscape that has experienced some of the most serious agricultural erosion in America; a new geomorphological and Hortonian system of interfluve ordering; and a 60-year field experiment of soil change in response to reforestation.
