Global Carbon Project (GCP)
The GCP was established in 2001 as a Joint Project of the Earth System Science Partnership.
The science frame work of GCP is organized around three themes:
- Patterns and Variability: What are the current geographical and temporal distributions of the major pools and fluxes in the global carbon cycle
- Processes and Interactions: What are the control and feedback mechanisms – both anthropogenic and non-anthropogenic – that determine the dynamics of the carbon cycle
- Carbon Management: What are the dynamics of the carbon-climate-human system into the future, and what points of intervention and windows of opportunity exist for human societies to manage this system?
