  7. A New U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan Anna Michalak1, Gregg Marland2, Rob Jackson3, Chris Sabine4CCS WG Co-Leads 1 The University of Michigan 2 Oak Ridge National Laboratory 3 Duke University 4 NOAA PMEL (USGCRP CCIWG Fall 2008- tentative May 2010)

  8. Fundamental Science Questions 1999 U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Plan: What has happened to the carbon dioxide that has already been emitted by human activities (past anthropogenic CO2)? What will be the future atmospheric CO2 concentration trajectory resulting from both past and future emissions? Current version for new Plan: How do natural processes and human actions affect the carbon cycle, on land, in the atmosphere, and in the oceans? How do policy and management decisions affect the levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and methane? How are ecosystems, species, and resources impacted by increasing greenhouse gas concentrations, the associated changes in climate, and carbon management decisions?

  9. Actions/Issues • Costing and Obligation – 566K cut to OB&B as of last week • Carryover of funds from one fiscal year to next • NPOESS is now the Joint Polar Satellite System – evolution of science requirements • Role of ocean biology and chemistry (color) in climate and Earth system science ; EOS Continuity – SSB/OSB NRC report underway • International data access/science team membership • Proposal Review Pressure • Team Membership • Results • Format/Venue
