    the 1990s the CCIWG was formally constituted as a working group the USGCRP in 1998 in parallel with the development of the 1999 community plan for U S carbon cycle science Sarmiento Wofsy et al 1999 described in the section below Pre 2009 the U S Carbon Cycle Science Program addressed the global carbon cycle research theme in the Strategic Plan for the U S Climate Change Science Program 2003 formerly and currently known as the USGCRP In 2007 the Climate Change Science Program released a major report from the Carbon Cycle Science Program the State of the Carbon Cycle Report SOCCR also known as CCSP Synthesis and Assessment Report 2 2 After regaining its current name in 2009 the USGCRP produced its newest decadal plan in 2012 US Global Change Research Program 2012 The U S Carbon Cycle Science Program and the CCIWG remain historical interagency activities under the auspices of the USGCRP aligned with its new vision and mission specifically within Program Element 2 Multidisciplinary Earth and Human Understanding under Goal 1 Advance Science of the 2012 2021 USGCRP Strategic Plan Back to top Carbon Science Planning The Carbon Cycle Science Planning documents are non federal reports developed and published by the community to provide U S funding agencies with information on long term community based research priorities for carbon cycle science The U S Carbon Cycle Science Program and CCIWG develop and implement research and funding priorities based on such community feedback in allignment with the USGCRP Strategic Plan and the evolving near and long term research priorities of the USGCRP A U S Carbon Cycle Science Plan 2011 A Report of the Carbon Cycle Science Steering Group and Subcommittee Anna Michalak Rob Jackson Gregg Marland Chris Sabine Co Chairs In 2011 the carbon cycle science community in the United States finished its planning process for carbon cycle research for the upcoming decade This reassessment of the U S carbon cycle science priorities was initiated by the U S Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group CCIWG and the Carbon Cycle Science Steering Group CCSSG in 2008 This planning process culminated in the publication of the new U S Carbon Cycle Science Plan The new Plan is intended to provide guidance for U S research efforts on the global carbon cycle for the next decade The Plan outlines priorities for research in carbon cycle science including a substantial expansion in the scope of the field In addition to reaffirming the need for basic research and for continuing the current areas of research in carbon cycle science the Plan outlines specific recommendations for new priorities This Plan outlines a strategy for refocusing U S carbon cycle research based on the current state of the science The development of this Plan was led by a committee of 25 active members of the carbon cycle research community Read the summary of recommendations An earlier report A U S Carbon Cycle Science Plan 1999 Sarmiento and Wofsy 1999 reflects the combined knowledge and

    federal program managers The CCIWG provides a mechanism for regular interagency consultation of Federal program managers that represent carbon cycle science interests and responsibilities 2 Producing program implementation plans The CCIWG is responsible for the development of research plans for U S carbon cycle science land ocean atmosphere and human dimension Detailed implementation plans will be developed through CCIWG sponsorship of planning efforts involving the carbon scientific community and or the Interagency Subcommittee on Global Change Research SGCR as appropriate 3 Planning and coordinating activities The CCIWG plans strategizes and coordinates agency and department approaches for addressing carbon cycle research priorities and needs by developing single and multi agency solicitations that will increase the overall value of the research CCIWG maintains interagency awareness by exchange of agency annual plans and coordinates allocation of resources to the extent possible CCIWG seeks to reduce redundant research review and paperwork through this coordination CCIWG identifies implementation priorities annually with formal recommendation of carbon cycle research priorities as requested by SGCR 4 Evaluating and ensuring research progress is achieved The CCIWG assesses the extent to which carbon cycle goals and objectives of the 2012 USGCRP Strategic Plan are being met by Federally funded researchers The CCIWG takes steps to ensure that this research remains relevant and productive and provides feedback to the SGCR on progress and priorities 5 Reporting carbon cycle research The CCIWG provides contributions to USGCRP s annual report Our Changing Planet The CCIWG provides input to or sponsors the development of other USGCRP documents e g Strategic Plan National Climate Assessments etc and reports on research plans and results as requested and or appropriate 6 Interacting with relevant USGCRP elements relevant U S Government programs the science community and public CCIWG interacts with and supports USGCRP and its subsidiary IWG s other related government programs and segments of the scientific community and public The goal of these interactions is to guide the Nation s carbon cycle research in ways that improve our understanding and prediction of coupled Earth natural and human systems in the context of a changing climate and that serve governmental and societal needs 7 Advising and participating in relevant syntheses and assessments The CCIWG facilitates relevant synthesis and assessment processes by coordinating interagency inputs reviewing draft prospectuses and reports and providing agency feedback to lead agency and authors The USGCRP s National Climate Assessment NCA and the State of Carbon Cycle Science Report SOCCR are examples 8 Serving as point of contact on carbon cycle research both nationally and internationally supporting and coordinating as appropriate The CCIWG serves as a point of contact between the SGCR including its USGCRP Director the National Coordination Office other USGCRP IWGs or subcommittees other relevant agency programs the research community of carbon cycle science and the general public It also supports and coordinates with appropriate international programs such as Earth System Science Partnership ESSP the Global Carbon Project GCP the Global Atmospheric Watch Programme GAW of the World Meteorological Organization and Group
