Please do the Model Survey!

ISMC and CZEN/ILTER organize a survey of models using data from long term and critical zone observatories. If you have used data of CZO or LTER sites in your modeling, we invite you to take part in this survey, which can foster our work on linking data to models. Please do the survey before the end of April!


Link to the online Survey:


The survey should take 10 to 15 minutes to fill out, please complete the survey on your model before 30th April 2017.

We anticipate your participation and appreciate it sincerely.

CZOs and LTERs provide essential data sets and a coordinated community of researchers that integrate hydrologic, ecological, geochemical and geomorphic processes from grain to watershed scales. These observatories should offer the lenses to bring into focus the rich complexity of interactions between the lithosphere, the pedosphere, the hydrosphere, the biosphere and the atmosphere. The development of numerical models that combine physical, biological and chemical processes is, therefore, a general goal of the LTERs and CZOs. The LTER and CZO programs aim at producing a fundamental understanding and four-dimensional data sets that will stimulate, inspire, and test the resulting predictive models. Several types and scales of modeling can contribute to these ambitions. To assess the current status and goal achievement of the modeling ambition, we organize this survey to identify pressing gaps in data availability for use in models and vice versa (gaps in modeling effort). Actual questions are, how the measured data can optimally be used and contribute to the broad knowledge of critical zone processes, and whether knowledge and/or data gaps exist that require advances in the measurement or the model linking and application.
The survey is an initiative of the ISMC in collaboration with CZEN and ILTER observatory networks to look for perspectives of site observation and model linking.
