NASA’s Carbon Cycle & Ecosystems (CC&E) focus area will be hosting the nextJoint Science Workshop (JSW) on May 8-12, 2023 at The Hotel in College Park, MD.
The first two days (May 8-9) will be LCLUC meeting with an emphasis on the early career scientists’ projects (LCLUC-19 oral presentations, LCLUC-21 posters). Next two days will be joint meeting with other NASA Earth Science programs of the Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems Focus Area at plenary sessions .
NASA’s CC&E focus area is an umbrella under which four program elements (Land-Cover and Land-Use Change, Ocean Biology and Biogeochemistry, Terrestrial Ecology, and Biological Diversity) provide knowledge of the interactions of global biogeochemical cycles and terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems with global environmental change and the implications for Earth's climate, productivity, and natural resources. This event will seek to combine input from community members across the CC&E programs and their Applied Sciences counterpart, the Ecological Forecasting program.
Individual program team meetings will be held Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, with the Joint Science Workshop general sessions occurring on Wednesday and Thursday. View the at-a-glance agenda here.
Who can attend:
Principal investigators, co-investigators, collaborators, stakeholders, and students funded through NASA's Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems focus area programs are welcome to attend, as well as those from the Ecological Forecasting program and Marine Biodiversity Observation Network (MBON). Meeting registration will open closer to the meeting dates; however, NASA Civil Servants and Contractors may register in NCTS now (#45747-23). JPL employees should register using the UFO conference travel website.
