We would like to thank everyone who visited our booth, participated in our International CZO Workshop, town hall and GIFT workshop, and attended our presentations, posters and Union Session. We look forward more CZ science next year in NOLA! 


The 2016 AGU Fall Meeting will be held December 12-16 in San Francisco, CA. Below is a list of some CZ science-related sessions, talks, poster sessions and event occurring during the 2016 AGU meeting. For a complete list of CZO presentations and posters at AGU 2016, please see the CZO Agenda

Opportunities:

CZO Booth
Exhibit Hall

CZO Geophysical Information for Teachers (GIFT) Workshop
The Shale Hills Critical Zone Observatory Virtual Fieldwork Experience:

Monday, December 12, 10:00- 11:30am, Marriott Marquis, Golden Gate A

Town Hall: Critical Zone Observatories: Platforms for Collaborative Science 
TH060: Tuesday, December 13, 12:30 - 1:30pm, Moscone West - 3022

Critical Zone Observatories (CZOs) are natural laboratories for investigating Earth surface processes. CZO research seeks to understand these coupled processes across all timescales using quantitative models parameterized from observations of meteorological variables, streams, and groundwater, and sampling and analyzing landforms, bedrock, soils, and ecosystems. Teams of cross-disciplinary scientists at nine sites across the United States work to further CZ science using field and theoretical approaches, education and outreach. The U.S. network now includes a national office and funds to develop international collaborations, and currently is working to develop strong ties with other U.S. entities including the LTER network and CUAHSI.

In this town hall the CZO community seeks to engage the greater Earth surface and environmental science community through: 1) a brief update on the recent development of a strategic plan for the U.S. CZO network and a status report of international CZ science activities; and, 2) a presentation by CZO researcher(s) highlighting important advances that could not have been made without the CZO approach. All scientists interested in problems related to the surface Earth environment are invited.

Critical Zone Observatories Graduate Research Group Gathering
Tuesday, December 13, 8:00 - 11:00pm, Zeitgeist Beer Garden (199 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94103)

The Graduate Research Group will be holding a social meet and greet outside on the patio at Zeitgeist Beer Garden. Bringing a jacket is recommended. This location can be easily reached via the 16th St and Mission BART station, UBER, or taxi. Look for our Critical Zone science banner! All graduate students and early career scientists are welcome to attend. For additional information/questions, please contact Justin Richardson (justin.richardson@cornell.edu).
