We write to encourage you to submit abstracts to our AGU 2022 fall meeting session "EP011: Earth Surface Processes and the Global Carbon Cycle"https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm22/prelim.cgi/Session/157974. This session aims to bridge multiple aspects of Earth's surface systems and to advance our understanding of the interplay between surface processes and the carbon cycle.
We are excited to welcome two excellent early career geochemists Dr. Katherine Grant from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Dr. Matthew Winnick from the University of Massachusetts Amherst as invited speakers.
The abstract submission deadline is August 3rd (23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT). Please find the session description below, and do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
Looking forward to your contributions!

Session Number: EP011
Session Description: The carbon cycle plays a central role in Earth’s climate system and in regulating long-term planetary habitability. While many biogeochemical reactions contribute to carbon transformations, Earth surface processes play an important modulating role through their influences on reaction timescales, the physical properties of soils/sediments, and mass fluxes. Here, we solicit contributions that investigate couplings between surface processes (e.g., erosion, fluid flow, and sediment deposition) and carbon cycling (organic and/or inorganic) across environments. We welcome submissions across a range of spatial (soil, hillslope, watershed, global) and temporal scales (modern to the geological past). Contributions may span from field studies to laboratory experiments, proxy studies utilizing isotope geochemistry, and theoretical or modeling research. By bringing together researchers in surface processes, biogeosciences, hydrology, and everything in between, we aim to build a holistic understanding of the carbon cycle. We welcome student submissions and aim to give talks to a diverse range of researchers.
