2nd TERENO OZCAR Conference 2023

Following the first French OZCAR and German TERENO research networks Joint Conference 2021 in Strasbourg (https://www.ozcar-ri.org/fr/1ere-conference-internationale-ozcar-tereno/), this co-organised international meeting will take place next September 2023 at the Gustav Streseman Institut (GSI) – European Congress and Training Centre in Bonn, Germany.

The event will offer keynote lectures, oral presentations and poster sessions relating on scientific research in the Critical Zone, which is the most superficial layer of the planet where all human activities concentrate.

The conference will cover the cutting edge scientific progresses in the various disciplines involved in the study of the Critical Zone: hydrology, geophysics, soil sciences, geochemistry, ecology, socio-ecology, and will thus highlight interdisciplinary research to address Critical Zone functioning for a better understanding in the Anthropocene era.

The meeting will also show how the use of multidisciplinary Critical Zone observatories, highly instrumented field sites where these disciplines interact and produce data and models, provide new insight for an integrated understanding of the Critical Zone.
