Date and Time: Monday, 9 December 2019: 18:15 - 19:15
Location: Moscone West, Room:2016, L2

The North American Carbon Program (NACP) serves as an essential venue for coordinated carbon cycle science research across North America, including measurement and research concerning terrestrial and coastal ocean carbon fluxes, their importance as sources and sinks of atmospheric greenhouse gases (primarily CO2 and CH4), and the extent to which they are affected by natural processes and human activities.  Since its initiation in 2002, new findings, new capabilities, and new research foci have emerged.  Building on findings and recommendations from Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2), the NACP community is currently developing a new strategic plan (the NACP Science Implementation Plan) that re-articulates the program’s goals and offers a vision for implementation.  This session provides an open forum to discuss the aims and implementation strategies designed to deliver the next generation of the NACP.

Date and Time: Wednesday, 11 December 2019: 12:30 - 13:30
Location: Moscone West, Room:2003, L2

Representing 13 federal agencies and departments with research and funding portfolio encompassing carbon and pertinent biogeochemical cycles, the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program (https://carboncyclescience.us), incorporates broad coordinated community input such as from U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plans (1999, 2011). Recently, the Program and its leadership, the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group or CCIWG (established in 1998), completed the latest State of the Carbon Cycle Report or SOCCR2 (USGCRP 2018) (https://carbon2018.globalchange.gov), a decadal assessment of carbon cycle science across land, atmosphere, ocean and society in North America, collaborating with over 200 experts. Engaging with AGU attendees (from academia, government, private sector, non-profits etc.) during this town hall, CCIWG Program Managers will discuss:

  • U.S./North American, European, Asian and other research & observation networks, progress and collaborations in carbon cycle research (inlc. North American Carbon Program, and Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Program);
  • Current/future community and interagency collaborations for coordination around pertinent research foci and communities;
  • Current/upcoming opportunities, interagency activities and partnerships;
  • Future research needs and actions, particularly those that require interagency collaborations;
  • After Action Review of SOCCR2 (lessons learned, future needs);
  • Future assessment recommendations;
  • Feedback from AGU attendees and deliberations on all the above.

Session Type: Oral
Date and Time: Friday, 13 December 2019; 08:00 - 10:00
Location: Moscone West; 3003, L3
Innovations in carbon measurement technologies, platforms and coordinated networks are advancing our ability to understand carbon stores, carbon cycle feedbacks, and the level of threat they pose. For instance, interagency, multi-partner organizations such as the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program (CCSP) and the E.U. Integrated Carbon Observation System (ICOS) working with thousands of multi-disciplinary community scientists, produce and use tremendous amounts of high quality data and analyses for understanding, observing and monitoring the carbon cycle. This session highlights novel data sets, quantitative methods, as well as innovative and emerging partnerships employed in characterizing the carbon cycle, with special attention to understanding the uncertainty in carbon budgets across land, air and water to inform management and policy decisions from local to global scale.
