The Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group, via the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program, under the auspices the U.S. Global Change Research Program, is leading the development of the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR-2) as a product of the Sustained National Climate Assessment. A new ad hoc committee of the Academies will conduct an independent review of the SOCCR-2 draft report, which will be available in early 2017. The committee will conduct this review concurrent with the public review period and will produce a report.
The focus of SOCCR-2 is on the scientific understanding of U.S. and North American carbon cycle stocks and fluxes, in the context of global-scale budgets. The National Academies is seeking individuals to serve on the Committee with expertise in key areas addressed in SOCCR-2.
Call for Nominations: Developing a Research Agenda for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration
The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine are pleased to announce a new study on Developing a Research Agenda for Carbon Dioxide Removal and Reliable Sequestration.
The Academies will convene an ad hoc committee to develop a detailed research and development agenda needed to assess the benefits, risks, and sustainable scale potential for carbon dioxide removal and sequestration approaches; and increase their commercial viability.
