Submit AGU abstracts: SOCCR2 and 20 years of coordinated carbon research

June 19, 2018
Washington, D.C.
We are planning to convene sessions at the December 2018 American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in Washington, D.C. to engage with community members. The focus will be on two major accomplishments. We are celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG) and the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program. We are also in the process of preparing for the final release of the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2) in the fall of 2018 (pending final U.S. Government clearance).
 
Please submit your AGU abstracts via the provided links below. The deadline is August 1, 2018.
 
GC072. Partnerships for Advancing and Facilitating Science: The State of the Carbon Cycle & 20 years of Research Coordination. The Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG) coordinates and integrates U.S. government-funded carbon cycle research. Born in 1998, it includes 12 U.S. agencies/departments leading the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program established in 1999. The CCIWG has facilitated/supported/led critical endeavors, including the North American Carbon and Ocean Carbon and Biogeochemistry Programs with the science community. One recent activity is the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2, 2018) authored by over 200 scientists from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. This North America-focused, decadal USGCRP Sustained Assessment report covers terrestrial, atmospheric, aquatic systems and ecosystem interfaces; social sciences, decision-support, modeling, observations, and mitigation. Celebrating over 20 years of CCIWG-facilitated partnerships, this session will highlight science syntheses, collaborative campaigns, SOCCR2 key findings, and some of the most critical multi-disciplinary experimental/manipulative, observational and modeling advances over the past two decades; revisiting progress made to date, and scoping upcoming decadal activities with the community.

Submit your abstract for the above session via GC072.

GC082. State of the Carbon Cycle in North America: Key Findings from Assessing a Decade of Science, Decisions, and Management Impacts. Carbon cycle information observed and collected from diverse managed and unmanaged systems (land, air, water, human settlements) and interfaces across North America have led to breakthrough multi-disciplinary advances in the understanding of global change and related impacts, as well as consequent decision-making across scales. This session features pertinent key findings from the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2, 2018) which assesses 10 years of carbon cycle science from the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Led by the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group (CCIWG) and U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program, this report was developed by over 200 multi-disciplinary team members, incorporating assessments of observations, indicators, trends, model projections, society, and decision-support infrastructure and mechanisms, including mitigation options for carbon management across assessed systems. Presentations from related assessments, syntheses and campaigns focused on carbon cycle research, science informing decisions and decisions impacting the carbon cycle are also welcome.
