On June 11, 2019, we concluded the 16-part special Spring 2019 webinar series 'From Science to Solutions: The State of the Carbon Cycle', which started on February 26, 2019.

The series was focused on communicating the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2) findings in relation to current and broader societal impacts and solutions.

All the webinar details, slides and recordings can be accessed below.

All webinars were recorded.
