The new version of the State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2) site is now live at https://carbon2018.globalchange.gov/
This new site comes equipped with a new design and many new user-friendly and interactive features including:
- Full content of report now available as web content, in addition to downloadable PDFs;
- Sections and figures including links for direct sharing via social media;

Incorporating 19 chapters distributed across four interconnected sections (I. Synthesis, II. Human Dimensions of the Carbon Cycle, III. State of Air, Land, and Water, IV. Consequences and Ways Forward), SOCCR2 assesses the last decade of cross-sectoral carbon cycle advances across the U.S., Canada and Mexico in the global context. This 878 pages decadal interagency U.S. Government assessment involved over 200 diverse experts from multiple nations working together over 3 years, producing over 6 drafts that collectively underwent over 6 rounds of formal reviews by diverse stakeholders including the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, the general public and 13 federal agencies and departments before its release.
