Global Network for Observations and Information on Mountain Environments (GEO-GNOME)
GEO-GNOME - Essential Climate Variables for Observations in Mountains
Mittelstrasse 43 | University of Bern, Switzerland | 24-26 June 2019
The co-leads of the Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Initiative “GEO-GNOME”, Mountain Research Initiative - MRI and the National Research Council, Italy - CNR, cordially invite your participation at the “GEO-GNOME Essential Climate Variables for Observations in MountainsWorkshop”, 24-26June2019, in Bern Switzerland.The broad objectives are to identify and select essential variables required in high elevation contexts for the monitoring of ‘mountain’ specific processes of climate change.We acknowledge the joint support from the European Space Agency (ESA) and Future Earth, as well as the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI), for thisworkshop.
Key objectives of this workshop are to:
1) Identify and understand relevant physical processes which can lead to enhanced mountain climate change;
2) identify EVs (essential variables) which are required to monitor/understand such processes and their consequences; and
3) discuss on how this can be done in the context of surface and in-situ observations (e.g. UHOPs), Earth Observation (EO) and numerical model simulations and how information from these different sources can be combined or integrated to gain the maximum/suitable information.
See the planned workshop programme and format here.
The workshop is free to attend, including lunch and breaks, however we request those interested in attending to mobilise your own resources for travel and accommodation. Given the workshop format, there are limited number of spots available for participants, therefore registration to attend is required. For any questions, please contact MRI at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please complete the registration form below to confirm your attendance, by 31 May 2019 at the latest.
Thank you for your collaboration!
