Additional information and instructions about the nomination process are posted on the NGAC Web page at http://www.fgdc.gov/ngac. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: John Mahoney, USGS (206–220–4621). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Committee conducts its operations in accordance with the provisions of the FACA. It reports to the Secretary of the Interior through the Chair of the FGDC Steering Committee and functions solely as an advisory body. The Committee provides recommendations and advice to the Department and the FGDC on policy and management issues related to the effective operation of Federal geospatial programs. The NGAC includes 25–30 members, selected to generally achieve a balanced representation of the viewpoints of the various partners involved in national VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:09 Jul 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 geospatial activities. NGAC members are appointed for staggered terms, and approximately one-half of the seats on the committee will be appointed during this round of appointments. Nominations will be reviewed by the FGDC. Additional information may be requested from nominees. Final selection and appointment of committee members will be made by the Secretary of the Interior. The Obama Administration prohibits individuals who are currently federally registered lobbyists to serve on all FACA and nonFACA boards, committees or councils. The Committee meets approximately 3–4 times per year. Committee members will serve without compensation. Travel and per diem costs will be provided for Committee members by USGS. The USGS will provide necessary support services to the Committee. Committee meetings will be open to the public. Notice of committee meetings will be published in the Federal Register at least 15 days before the date of the meeting. The public will have an opportunity to provide input at these meetings.

ACTION: Notice of Publication of a Carbon Dioxide Storage Resource 
Assessment Methodology.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: In 2007, the Energy Independence and Security Act (Pub. L. 
110-140) directed the United States Geological Survey (USGS) to conduct 
a national assessment of potential geologic storage resources for 
carbon dioxide (CO2). The first requirement stipulated in 
the legislation was to develop a methodology to estimate storage 
potential that could be applied uniformly to geologic formations across 
the United States, and then to announce the publication of the 
methodology in the Federal Register. The methodology, ``A Probabilistic 
Assessment Methodology for the Evaluation of Geologic Carbon Dioxide 
Storage,'' was published as an Open-File Report by the USGS and can be 
downloaded from: http://pubs.usgs.gov/of/2010/1127. This new 
methodology incorporates comments from the public, the heads of 
affected Federal and State agencies, and technical experts from Federal 
agencies, institutions of higher education, nongovernmental 
organizations, State organizations, industry, and international 
geoscience organizations, as required by the legislation. The new 
methodology will allow the USGS to assess the geologic CO2 
storage resource potential for the United States. The results of the 
USGS national assessment will provide important information to evaluate 
the potential for CO2 storage as a mitigation option for 
global climate change.
    Inquiries: If other parties are interested in learning more about 
the methodology, USGS CO2 storage assessment activities, or 
would like to be mailed a hard copy, please contact Peter Warwick,
