Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR) is a hot topic right now – there have been a flurry of various activities recently1. As a community of practice focusing on carbon cycle science in North America and adjacent oceans, NACP is poised to make significant contributions in this arena as new programs are initiated and existing CDR activities expand and grow. Perhaps the most relevant area for NACP engagement is the development and implementation of robust measuring, monitoring, and verification (MMRV) for CDR activities, and we are planning an in-depth workshop on this topic in early 2023.
However, we recognize that CDR as a conceptual framework and practice may be relatively novel for many in the NACP community. Thus we are offering a “CDR Academy” that will offer introductory material on the basics of CDR in different Earth systems, including:
- A curated list of introductory resources (reports, videos, articles, etc.) on CDR
- A series of 1-hour webinars on CDR in different ecosystems/contexts, such as oceans and coasts, geological reservoirs, natural and working lands, and the atmosphere. These webinars will be recorded for future viewing and reference.
- A panel discussion with webinar presenters discussing cross-cutting themes, research needs, and potential opportunities for collaboration.
Register for the next webinar on Thurday, Novemeber 3 at 2:30 PM here.
