Report Development Process
Leading the development of SOCCR2, CCIWG comprises program managers from agencies and departments with carbon cycle–related research and funding portfolios. CCIWG developed the foundation of the report process starting circa 2014 to 2015 in response to needs identified and expressed by the North American carbon cycle science community. The working group oversaw the compilation and synthesis of report contributions from all the authors, from beginning to end. The lead CCIWG agency member for SOCCR2’s administrative (legal) purposes is the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA). The SOCCR2 agency co-leads are all the CCIWG member departments and agencies including the U.S. Geological Survey, DOE, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), NASA, USDA Forest Service, USDA NIFA, National Institute of Standards and Technology, EPA and NSF. Figure A.1 and the sections that follow describe the core SOCCR2 team and the processes it has undertaken under CCIWG auspices.
