  • State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR) | United States Carbon Cycle Science Program
    the State of the Carbon Cycle Report SOCCR was released by the US Climate Change Science Program now the USGCRP on November 13 2007 The Terms of Reference for the first SOCCR 2003 prepared by the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group and in consultation with the Carbon Cycle Scientific Steering Group envisioned a report designed to provide accurate unbiased and policy relevant scientific information concerning the carbon cycle to a broad range of stakeholders The SOCCR Coordinating Team focused on 1 summarizing our knowledge of carbon cycle properties and changes relevant to the contributions of and impacts upon the U S and the rest of the world and 2 providing scientific information for U S decision support focused on key issues for carbon management and policy The report depends on results from comprehensive and informative programs such as the North American Carbon Program and Ocean Carbon and Climate Change Program and demands a global perspective integrating information from studies on land and in the atmosphere and oceans around the world The expected audience includes researchers decision makers in the public and private sectors and the public The Executive Summary is available here Background documents prospectus prior draft versions review comments and responses are available here http cdiac ornl gov SOCCR documents html or below Draft Versions of the Report March 2007 version of SOCCR SAP 2 2 March 2007 revision of government review draft Executive Summary Entire Document January 2007 version of SOCCR SAP 2 2 government review draft Executive Summary Entire Document September 2006 version of SOCCR SAP 2 2 CCSP public review draft Executive Summary Entire Document May 2006 version of SOCCR SAP 2 2 submitted for technical peer review Entire Document Review Comments and Responses Public Review Commments and Authors Responses Technical Peer Review Commments and Authors

  • U.S. Scientists Call for Integrated Study of Carbon Cycle | United States Carbon Cycle Science Program
    the U S carbon cycle science priorities was initiated by the U S Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group CCIWG and Carbon Cycle Science Steering Group CCSSG in 2008 This planning process has 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 1 With greenhouse gas concentrations rising rapidly active management of the global carbon cycle is increasingly urgent The plan outlines the need for carbon cycle research on the efficacy and environmental consequences of carbon management policies strategies and technologies 2 Because humans are an integral part of the carbon cycle both through influences on natural systems and through direct emissions of greenhouse gases study of the human elements of the carbon cycle must be more thoroughly integrated into the future research agenda 3 The Plan recommends increased exploration of the direct impact of rising greenhouse gas concentrations and carbon management decisions on ecosystems species and natural resources 4 Finally because decisions about the carbon cycle will inevitably be made with imperfect knowledge the Plan emphasizes the need for a better understanding of uncertainly in all aspects of the global carbon cycle and improved ways of conveying those uncertainties to policy and decision makers as well as society at large View the A U S Carbon Cycle Science Plan Printed copies or copies on CD can be requested from the U S Carbon Cycle Science
