A U.S. History of Federal Collaborations around Carbon - Sustaining and Assessing Impactful Climate Change Research

The U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program, established in 1999, has a mission to coordinate and facilitate federally funded carbon cycle research, and provide leadership to the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP)  on carbon cycle science priorities. The USGCRP, established in 1990, is mandated by Congress to 'assist the Nation and the world to understand, assess, predict, and respond to human-induced and natural processes of global change'. This talk will provide a historical overview of both programs, focusing on how we are facilitating interagency scientific endeavors toward seeking and enabling climate change solutions via interdisciplinary carbon cycle research. The Second State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2), a multiagency decadal science assessment will be highlighted. An overview of the federal carbon cycle and climate change research grants, fellowship and engagement opportunities will also be provided, in relation to the activities of the U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program.
