B001 -A Decade of Progress in Global Carbon Cycle Science

It has been 50 years since the first Earth Day, 30 years since the Global Change Research Act and over 20 years since a U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan (1999) and the establishment of the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program by the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group. Decades of coordinated U.S. and global climate change experimental, observational, monitoring and modeling efforts have advanced the understanding of feedbacks between anthropogenic and natural carbon cycle components. This session showcases decadal breakthroughs in carbon cycle science since ‘A U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan (2011)’. These advances, some of which were highlighted in the Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report, are deepening carbon cycle, climate change mitigation and negative emissions research knowledge, as facilitated and coordinated by federal, state and private sector collaborations. We will examine pertinent upcoming decadal research needs to further enhance understanding, applications and progress in carbon cycle science.
