From page 5...
... The first SOCCR assessment was released in 2007, and this second assessment examines the progress in scientific understanding that has been made in the decade since then. While SOCCR2 does not prescribe or recommend policy, the draft report states that "it is intended to help inform mitigation and adaptation policies and management decisions related to the carbon cycle, supporting improved coordination for pertinent research, and monitoring and management activities for responding to global change".
From page 6...
... While the Committee does offer numerous suggestions for improving various parts of the draft report, these are offered in the spirit of constructive criticism, with great admiration for and appreciation of the huge amount of work that the SOCCR2 authors have put into this assessment, and with shared hopes that the final report will provide a valuable resource for decision makers, scientists, and many others across the country.
