Sustain-COAST will be presented at the First OZCAR TERENO International Conference Strasbourg, France 5-7 October 2021

The French OZCAR and German TERENO research networks have decided to co-organise an international meeting every two years that will be held alternatively in Germany and in France.

The first OZCAR TERENO International Conference - Advancing Critical Zone science that will take place in Strasbourg from Tuesday Oct. 5, 2021 to Thursday Oct. 7, 2021.

To account for the pandemics, the conference is scheduled in the HYBRID format (both on site and virtual). It will be moved to fully virtual if the sanitary conditions are not satisfactory this autumn.

The conference will be physically held in Strasbourg, at Palais des Congrès Pierre-Pflimlin, Strasbourg Événements, Place de Bordeaux.

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 meeting will cover the cutting edge scientific progresses in a variety of  disciplines: hydrology, geophysics, soil sciences, geochemistry, ecology, socio-ecology

The meeting will also help a better integrated process understanding using multidisciplinary Critical Zone observatories highly instrumented field sites where these disciplines interact and produce data and models.

SUSTAIN-COAST will be presented at EGU general assembly on 26 April 2021

The annual EGU General Assembly is Europe’s largest and most prominent geosciences event. It attracts more than 16,000 scientists, more than half of which are early career, from all over the world.

The meeting’s sessions cover all disciplines in the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Each annual General Assembly typically features more than 16,000 oral, poster and PICOs (interactive presentations that combine the advantages of orals and posters).

Aside from the disciplinary sessions, which cover topics selected by each scientific division (or programme group), the meeting also features many Union-wide sessions. These include Great Debates and Union Symposia, inter- and transdisciplinary sessions, medal lectures, short courses, and Education and Outreach Sessions (such as the Geosciences Information For Teachers workshop, GIFT).

Sustain-COAST will be presented on 26 APRIL 2021 :
