After the first French OZCAR and German TERENO research networks Joint Conference 2021 in Strasbourg this co-organised international meeting 2023 will take place in Bonn, Germany.
The event will offer keynote lectures oral presentations and poster sessions on scientific research on 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 a variety of  disciplines: hydrology, geophysics, soil sciences, geochemistry, ecology, socio-ecology and will highlight interdisciplinary research to address critical zone functioning in the anthropocene. 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.
