The implementation strategy of the GCP is organised around three science themes:
- patterns and variability,
- processes and interactions, and
- carbon management.
These focus the activities which are the main research areas that the GCP will develop over the life of the project. Within each activity there are a number of tasks which are either discrete units of implementation or components of a step-wise approach to achieve an overall goal. In addition, there are project-wide efforts to develop timely synthesis of the global carbon cycle or parts of it, and specific products for communication and outreach for the multiple audiences of the GCP.
