Carbon Trends and Management Partners

NIACS work related to Carbon Trends and Management maintains and cultivates partnerships to ensure technically robust science, effective information delivery, and strategic growth. Scientific partnerships include research collaborators from government, academia, and non-profits. These partnerships are the foundation of NIACS projects ranging from pure research into soil organic matter radiocarbon dynamics, to applied research into management impacts on carbon sequestration. Collectively, NIACS and its partners work together strategically, to ensure that new projects are responsive to stakeholder needs, programmatic opportunities, and growth areas
