Description

How critical zone processes, water balances, and mass fluxes differ in landscapes with contrasting lithology but similar climatic and environmental histories is the overarching focus of the Luquillo Critical Zone Observatory (LCZO). Although bedrock lithology and chemistry have been considered primary state factors in landscape and soil development for over a century, the influences of lithology on denudation, hydrologic routing, and geochemical processing is poorly constrained in most studies.
