今年的年会是10月22-24 日在美国普渡大学召开，会议题目是Critical zone science,sustainability,and services in a changing world.
a. Near surface flux of solid, dissolved, and gaseous C and N from soil, weathered outcrop, and litter organic matter in catchments
b. CZ services and functions regulating anthropogenic-sourced contaminant reactivity, mobility, and mean residence time
c. Mechanisms of stabilization/destabilization of organic matter in soils
d.The role of hydrology and mineralogy in the deep connectivity of dissolved organic matter and associated inorganic elements in the CZ
e. Climate and land use regulation of C, N, and water cycles in terrestrial ecosystems.
Three workshops are planned and include
1) multivariate and chemometric methods for large and complex data set analysis in CZ science,
2) organic matter dynamics as controlled by erosion and deposition,
3) mineralogical controls on soil and sediment OM reactivity and persistence.
二是（CUAHSI）仪器培训短期课程（给研究生组织的），10月21日就开始。an educational activity in the form of a CUAHSI instrument training short course on “The Role of Runoff and Erosion on Soil Carbon Stocks: From Soilscapes to Landscapes”.
The course, beginning on October 21, one day prior to the main conference activities, is aimed at graduate students and designed to inform participants about the state-of-the-art instrumentation and measurements that are available for quantifying carbon dynamics in Intensively Managed Landscapes (IMLs). This course will examine the key processes that define carbon budget in intensively managed landscapes, which include erosion, litter incorporation into the soil profile, microbial activity/ respiration, and stabilization in aggregates. Field demonstrations of mobile rainfall simulators will be used demonstrate soil movement, deposition, and reactivity with a variety of field and lab-based tools. A separate registration portal will be established for interested graduate and postdoctoral researchers.
