Critical Conversations: Why integrated earth and environmental science might define your future Archive

All of the recordings in this series are posted on our YouTube page

In collaboration with the Critical Zone RCN and the National Association of Geoscience Teachers, CUAHSI hosted a webinar series for undergraduate and graduate students new to CZ science entitled "Critical conversations: why integrated earth and environmental science might define your future”. The "critical zone" (CZ) is the part of the earth that goes from the atmosphere down through groundwater.

Our goals were to introduce concepts in CZ science, provide professional development for those interested in critical zone (CZ) science, build a network for the next generation of CZ scientists, and explore some big questions about how the shallow earth system works.
