Global Fair and Workshop on Long-Term Observing Systems of Mountain Social-Ecological Systems

Date and Time: 
Wed, 07/16/2014 (All day) - Sat, 07/19/2014 (All day)
Reno, Nev. USA

Mountain Research Initiative and the University of Nevada at Reno 

A multi-day fair and workshop for all who gather data on mountain social, biological or abiotic systems to

  • describe their work
  • explore the questions and phenomena driving observations
  • explain sensors and protocols (e.g., flagship stations, crowd-sourcing, upscaling, etc.) 
  • discuss data management, user access and visualization
  • compare strategies for communicating data from remote locales
  • visit exemplary transects and observatories
  • create new collaborations
  • formalize cooperative arrangements.


The goal of the fair and workshop is to move toward a more comprehensive, global mountain observation network by strengthening the ties between existing observation systems.
