The American Geophysical Union (AGU) Fall Meeting 2021 will be held in New Orleans, USA and Online Everywhere from 13-17 December 2021.  #AGU21 is the leading forum for advancing Earth and space science and leveraging this research toward solutions for societal challenges. The MRI is convening an exciting mountain-focused session.

MRI Session: GC048 - Global Environmental Change in Mountain Social-Ecological Systems

Conveners: Carolina Adler (MRI Executive Director), Gabrielle Vance (MRI Scientific Project Officer), Bryan Mark (MRI SLC Member), Shawn Marshall (MRI SLC Member)

Mountains are complex social-ecological systems and natural laboratories in which to explore global change. We invite contributions examining past, present, and future environmental change and associated societal impacts in global mountain environments. This session is open to measurement and modelling studies of mountain climate, cryosphere, ecology, hazards, and hydrology, including coupled societal resources and risks. Mountain terrain is difficult to resolve in climate models, and many areas of the world lack high-elevation monitoring infrastructure. We particularly welcome contributions addressing such knowledge gaps, including high-elevation monitoring efforts, measurements across altitudinal gradients, climate downscaling strategies, and remote sensing innovations. This session is supported by the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI).
