FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: U.S. Carbon Cycle Science Program/CCIWG/ USGCRP Contact: Dr. Gyami Shrestha; email: gshrestha@usgcrp.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Context: The U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP) is mandated under the Global Change Research Act (GCRA) of 1990 to conduct a quadrennial National Climate Assessment (NCA). Under its current decadal strategic plan (http://go.usa.gov/3qGU4), USGCRP is building sustained assessment capacity. The sustained assessment supports the Nation’s ability to understand, anticipate, and respond to risks and potential impacts brought about by global environmental change. As part of the ongoing NCA process, the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR–2) is being developed to inform the assessment. The last (3rd) NCA (2014) (NCA3: http:// nca2014.globalchange.gov) and the process to develop it provided a foundation for subsequent activities and reports. The SOCCR–2 assessment provides an update to the carbon cycle science information presented in the 2014 NCA and the 2007 State of the Carbon Cycle Report, a Scientific Assessment Product (SAP 2.2) that directly informed the 2nd NCA. The SOCCR–2 assessment provides updated carbon cycle science findings and projections, and is an important input to the authors of the next quadrennial NCA, expected in 2018. The 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR–2) is a product of the U.S. Global Change Research Program (USGCRP), and is organized and led by an interagency team, the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group. The draft assessment was written by Federal and non-Federal authors identified via an Open Call for nominations (www.federalregister.gov/documents/ 2016/02/12/2016-02927/request-forpublic-engagement-in-the-interagencyspecial-report-2nd-state-of-the-carboncycle-report). An interagency Federal Steering Committee selected authors based on their demonstrated subject PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 matter expertise, relevant publications, and knowledge of specific topics designated in an outline included in the SOCCR–2 prospectus that can be found through a link on the SOCCR–2 (https:// www.carboncyclescience.us/statecarbon-cycle-report-soccr. This assessment responds to the 1990 Congressional mandate to periodically produce National Climate Assessments and to assist the nation in understanding, assessing, predicting, and responding to global change. The report adheres to the Information Quality Act requirements (http:// www.cio.noaa.gov/services_programs/ info_quality.html) for quality, transparency, and accessibility as appropriate for a Highly Influential Scientific Assessment (HISA).
