The primary avenue for CZO education of research peers is through national meetings.
The CZOs include a staffed booth in the exhibit hall at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union and have also presented booth exhibits at the annual meetings of the Geological Society of America and Soil Science Society of America. Future plans include booth presence at the annual meeting of the Ecological Society of America and the Goldschmidt Conference.
The CZO national coordinator recently presented two CZO-wide posters at the triennial all-hands meeting of the Long-Term Ecological Research network.
The CZOs also regularly communicate with and engage over 1000 members of the Critical Zone Exploration Network (www.czen.org)
Highlights of the 2012 CZO booth at the annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, CA included the new detailed CZO brochure derived from the recent International Innovations articles completed in Summer 2012, a "how-to-collaborate-at-a-CZO" handout, a formal comprehensive listing of all CZO-related presentations at the meeting, working examples of Southern Sierra CZO sensor instrumentation, and a visit by NSF program director Suresh. Other CZO activities at the meeting included: 2 formal business meetings, one with NSF program directors; a pre-meeting LiDAR workshop, and a meeting of the CZO Graduate Research Group.
The third consecutive year of "boothing" at AGU in 2012 was the most successful for the CZOs - fully staffed by CZO PIs, senior scientists, technicians and graduate students offering a broad array of new and past pamphlets and publications.
