In collaboration with the Critical Zone RCN and the National Association of Geoscience Teachers, CUAHSI is hosting 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 are 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.
These webinars will run from April 9 to May 21, 2021, Fridays at 12:00 p.m. ET. You must register for each webinar individually to receive connection information.
