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.  

NASA Surface Biology and Geology (SBG) is actively seeking user community input to understand how future SBG datasets and information products can be of value to users overall and in targeted application areas.

NASA JPL, in coordination with RTI International, is undertaking a study to inform the applications and the information access and product development of the planned NASA hyperspectral and thermal imaging satellite mission Surface Biology and Geology (SBG). This is a unique opportunity to inform and influence the development of SBG to better serve the earth observation needs of the global conservation and biodiversity community and private sector/NGO user communities.

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.

SoilBON is an open network of scientists and practitioners that aims to create a research platform for tracking and assessing soil biodiversity and functions across the world, particularly in mountain areas. 

As a first step, this primarily means that we need to have a balanced distribution of sampling sites across the world without much clustering and overlap. In the past few weeks we have been gathering collaborators all over the world, but we are still far from having a balanced and well represented distribution of global soil conditions.

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.
