Seminar 12 in the Series: From Science to Solutions: The State of the Carbon Cycle, the 2nd State of the Carbon Cycle Report (SOCCR2). We plan to host this series series on Tuesdays, 2/26-6/4.


Scientific community engagement can help funding program managers and researchers alike in managing resources, facilitating collaboration, and fostering innovation and insight. NASA's Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Office at Goddard Space Flight Center has been serving this role for NASA programs such as Terrestrial Ecology and Biodiversity and Ecosystem Functioning, as well as supporting the broader community through the North American Carbon Program (NACP). This work has enabled much of the research that contributed to the success of the Second State of the Carbon Cycle (SOCCR2).

About the Speaker:

Dr. Libby Larson started working for NASA as a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in 2012. After her fellowship ended, she was hired by the NASA Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Office to continue her work in coordinating the North American Carbon Program, supporting the Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) field campaign, and representing NASA in the US Global Change Research Program. In addition to serving on the Carbon Cycle Interagency Working Group, she also co-chairs the Social Sciences Steering Committee. Dr. Larson is an urban ecologist by training and was a contributing author to the Built Environment, Urban Systems, and Cities chapter of the 2018 National Climate Assessment.
