June, 2019

Our partners at the Programa Mexicano del Carbono or PMC (Mexican Carbon Program) just published the ‘Estado del Ciclo del Carbono en México: Agenda Azul y Verde’ (translated as the ‘State of the Carbon Cycle in Mexico: Agenda Blue and Green). The PMC also contibuted to the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report.


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.


Please submit your abstract to the first joint AGU session of the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program and the E.U. Integrated Carbon Observation System via this submission site by July 31, 2019.
