Note to CZ colleagues

The CZO program will end Nov. 2020, succeeded by a new "Critical Zone Collaborative Network”. Let's explore how the CZ community can build upon the CZOs via new NSF proposals (due 02 Dec. 2019). Learn more about the new network and get in touch!


CZO works closely with CZEN

CZEN, the Critical Zone Exploration Network is an international community of people and field sites investigating processes in the Critical Zone: CZEN Info | Jobs & Opportunities | Community Groups | Field Sites (Site Seeker)
