October 2013 Workshop on Human-Carbon Interactions in Urban Systems

A Workshop on Human-Carbon Interactions in Urban Systems wil be held from October 16 to 18, 2013 at the NCAR EOL Atrium in Boulder, Colorado. 

The U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program/Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG) is sponsoring this workshop to examine the state of the science and gaps in knowledge related to the societal and physical factors affecting carbon dynamics in urban systems and decision-making feedbacks.

The focus will be on urban systems and their surrounding land transformation as a rich subset of the broader human-carbon interactions in an effort to simplify this first attempt at building and socializing an interdisciplinary research community.

The outcome of the workshop will be a foundational paper that will serve as an input for a truly integrated research solicitation or program on Human-Carbon Interactions in Urban Systems.

For more details, please contact the workshop Coordinators: Paty Romero-Lankao (NCAR), Kevin Gurney (ASU) and/or Karen Seto (Yale).
