The State of the Carbon Cycle Report is a broadly conceived activity designed to provide accurate, unbiased, and policy-relevant scientific information concerning the carbon cycle to a broad range of stakeholders.

The two overarching objectives for the SOCCR are to summarize scientific knowledge about carbon cycle properties and changes; and to provide scientific information for decision support and policy formulation concerning carbon.
