Tools for integrating and synthesizing data from CZOs and watershed sites

Leadership class computers, big data, growth of AI and other technological advancements are changing how critical zone function is understood and predicted. This webinar series is aimed at exchanging ideas and knowledge about open and reproducible software practices that will enhance interdisciplinary collaboration and increase capacity for synthesis.

Please join watershed science researchers and CUAHSI each Thursday at 9:00 AM PST from October 21 - December 2 for a webinar series on transferable and broadly applicable tools, workflows and simulation capabilities. The goals for this series are to understand the portfolio of innovative and computationally advanced cyberinfrastructure tools, workflows and modelling approaches that aim to improve our understanding of critical zone functioning. Each webinar will provide an overview of the key capability followed by a discussion of the potential use in cross-disciplinary integration and cross-site synthesis activities.

This is the 2nd of the Critical Zone Observatory (CZO) Cyberseminar Series. Convened by the CZN Early Career Network in partnership with the Critical Zone Collaborative Network. Click here for more information on the first series held Fall 2021: Introduction to critical zone observatories and watershed sites. 

When: Thursday’s, October 21 - December 2, 2021

Time: 12:00-1:00 ET
