French network of Critical Zone Observatories: Research and Applications

OZCAR (Critical Zone Observatories: Research and Application) is a national distributed research infrastructure associating most of the French observation sites dedicated to the observation and monitoring of the Critical Zone, CZ, the thin outer venner of Earth’s continents extending from the top of the vegetation canopy down to groundwater.


Sylvain Kuppel, post doctorant for the modelling of the critical zone

Sylvain Kuppel, post doctorant, arrived last May 2019 for the modelling of the critical zone at catchment scale: a multi-site approach to track climatic, geological, and land cover linkages in the spatio-temporal partitioning of hydrological and geochemical fluxes. The objective: exchanges on the moddelling in defined observatories and develop a common vision in the critical […]
