Key supporting references include Gurney et al. (2017), Lamb et al. (2016), Lauvaux et al. (2016), and McKain et al. (2012, 2015)."^^xsd:string; gcis:assessmentOfConfidenceBasedOnEvidence "There is broad agreement that integration and reconciliation remain challenging. However, the various disciplines that pursue different methodological approaches to urban carbon flux assessment have different 1) definitions of uncertainty, 2) needs for attribution, and 3) criteria for successful mitigation guidance. Hence, some disagreement exists over specific policy application and utility."^^xsd:string; gcis:newInformationAndRemainingUncertainties "The major uncertainties related to integrating and reconciling urban carbon budget studies are those intrinsic to the different methodologies used. For trend detection and mitigation guidance, major uncertainties arise from the differences in scientific goals versus policy application."^^xsd:string; a gcis:Finding . ## This finding cites the following entities: <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report/chapter/understanding-urban-carbon-fluxes/finding/key-message-4-3> prov:wasDerivedFrom <https://data.globalchange.gov/report/second-state-carbon-cycle-report-soccr2-sustained-assessment-report/chapter/preface/figure/figurep-4>.
