GEO Mountains

The GEO Mountains General Meeting on 30 November 2021 will serve as a platform for exchange, bringing participants up to speed on recent developments at GEO Mountains and inviting discussion on the activities of Task Groups. GEO Mountains participants will also provide key updates on ongoing projects that could contribute to the objectives of GEO Mountains.

MRI SLC member Mandira Shrestha and Executive Director Carolina Adler presented at the GEO Climate Policy and Finance workshop held 21-23 September 2021. 

This GEO Mountains workshop sought to better understand the current interdisciplinary “data landscape” across the Caucasus region.  

The fourth event in the MRI Anniversary Lecture Series took place today, celebrating 20 years since the MRI Coordination Office was founded in 2001. This series aims to showcase MRI synthesis workshop research and build capacity in the mountain research community.

The Adaptation at Altitude Solutions Portal allows users to access and explore comprehensive knowledge on tried and tested climate change adaptation solutions for mountain regions, see where they have been implemented, and by who.

The GEO Mountains Inventory of In Situ Observational Infrastructure – a compilation of information on in situ observatories and other infrastructure in the mountains of the world – can now be viewed as an interactive web map, with the corresponding dataset also available for download. 

GEO Mountains is pleased to announce the release of its Inventory of In Situ Observational Infrastructure v1.0. The Inventory intends to compile systematic metadata on mountain observational infrastructure (stations, station networks, experimental catchments, etc.) from a wide range of disciplines.

The Forum Carpaticum 2021 Virtual Symposium took place online from 21-25 June. During the Symposium, GEO Mountains hosted a workshop on Inter- and Transdisciplinary Mountain Data in the Carpathians: Identifying User Requirements and Access Preferences.

In June of 2021, the U.S. Geological Survey completed and made available the Global Mountain Explorer Version 2.0. The Global Mountain Explorer (GME) is a web-based visualization and query tool which allows the online exploration of three terrain-based characterizations of global mountain extent. These characterizations are often referred to as K1, K2, and K3, according to the last name of the first author of the research paper which presented the respective analysis.
