Completion of 'Key Uncertainties in the Global Carbon-Cycle' workshop

September 17, 2013
Boulder, Colorado


The August 2013 workshop on 'Key Uncertainties in the Global Carbon-Cycle: Perspectives across terrestrial and ocean ecosystems' was successfully concluded at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, CO. Co-sponsored by the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program, this workshop's recorded videos/presentations and slides are now available here and below. 

This event was organized to help develop a multi-disciplinary approach to global carbon cycle science by integrating knowledge from both land and ocean communities.The major outcomes of the meeting will be published soon.
