Carbon Digest #9: Carbon Research, Open Science Meeting, Informing Implementation + Decisions + Carbon Removal (Earth Day issue)

April 22, 2021

Happy Earth day! We just released the Carbon Digest #9: Carbon Research, Open Science Meeting, Informing Implementation + Decisions + Carbon Removal

(Earth Day issue)

March/April 2021

Happy #EarthDay! I hope that you have all been well and healthy. It’s been a busy spring. As you know, today, the Leaders Summit on Climate Change is highlighting the urgent need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help vulnerable countries cope with unavoidable climate impacts, as well as the economic benefits of climate action. Related to this need, our interagency team continues to plan and implement activities in support of our mission to coordinate and facilitate federally funded carbon cycle research, and provide leadership to the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) on carbon cycle science priorities. For instance, in the last issue of our periodic newsletter,Carbon Digest #8: Open Science Meeting, Informing Decisions and Strategic Planning, we highlighted what informs the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program Strategic Planning process and how carbon cycle research can inform decisions. Pertinent topics, opportunities and major scientific updates from you populate this current issue, Carbon Digest #9, and were also reflected during conversations at the 7th Open Science Meeting of the North American Carbon Program (NACP) last month, which we discuss below. If you’re interested in submitting future updates to us, please see the end of the newsletter. We look forward to your continued participation, input and collaborations!

Wishing you the best of health,
Gyami Shrestha, Ph.D., Director, U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program Office, Washington, D.C.
