GEO Mountains

The Earth Observation for Alpine ecosystems ‘eco4alps’ project, a regional initiative of the European Space Agency (ESA) and GEO Mountains affiliate project, seeks the mountain research community's input to assess stakeholder requirements in Alpine ecosystems.

The Global Climate Observing System (GCOS) recently invited all interested participants to review the draft of its 2021 Status Report.

Human populations in both upland and connected downstream regions rely greatly on ecosystem goods and services provided by mountainous environments. Yet being often extremely steep, remote, and/or inhospitable, mountains represent rather unique contexts, with obstacles to making representative and informative environmental observations being numerous.

The Group on Earth Observations (GEO) Global Network for Information and Observations in Mountain Environments has had a busy last few months.

Firstly, we completed our rebranding exercise, the outcomes of which are a change in our “short name” from GEO-GNOME to GEO Mountains, as well as a new logo (see below!). We sincerely hope that you – the mountain community – appreciate these changes and feel motivated to further mobilise yourselves around our Initiative in 2021!
