Tuesday, February 26, 2019. 12:00PM. Webinar: From Science to Solutions: The State of the Carbon Cycle Assessment. Gyami Shrestha, U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program; Nancy Cavallaoro, USDA; and Zhiliang Zhu, USGS. Sponsored by NOAA. More information here.
What was the fate and impact of carbon in atmospheric, aquatic and terrestrial systems across North America over the last decade? How is it projected to grow and impact future climate change, given current scenarios and how can we harness current scientific and socio-economic advances in our knowledge of the carbon cycle at the intersection of human dimensions to better manage it in order to reduce future climate change risks? The just released Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (#SOCCR2, 2018) tells you all about it. SOCCR2 is a Sustained Assessment series special product of the U.S. Global Change Research Program, spanning 4 sections, 19 chapters and 7 appendices across 878 pages, developed by a 200+ member international team who produced over 6 formal drafts reviewed over 6 times, including by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the general public before final review and released by the 13 agencies of the USGCRP the same day as the 4th National Climate Assessment.
