Expressions of interest in the formation of Task Groups
Please indicate below which task(s) you would be willing to contribute towards
I am interested in:
1.1(a): Contribute to developing and maintaining a list of relevant datasets (for eventual sharing)
Contribute to developing and maintaining
a list of mountain observatory infrastructure (preliminary version presented in the meeting)
1.2: Contribute to the planning of regional consultations (early 2021) into i) data portal requirement, and ii) data needs / main data gaps
1.4. Contribute a "knowledge package" via GEO Mountains to the GEO Knowledge Hub, thereby making your work more reproducible / scalable / transferrable
2.1: Assist with the ongoing analysis into the extent to which data from predominantly research-oriented in situ mountain observatories are i) freely available, and ii) what observational standards are followed (note: this task is closely linked with 1.1(b).
2.2. Contribute to the MRI's existing Mountain Observatories and Elevation Dependent Climate Change Working Groups and GEO Mountains to support the development of the Unified High Elevation Platform (UHOP) and/or an overarching global network of mountain observatories
2.3. Assist with the preparatory work for a forthcoming GEO Mountains Workshop on "Essential Mountain Socio-Ecological Variables" (with a focus on changes and impacts)
2.4. Assist with the development of a spatial dataset ("K4") which integrates mountain socio-economic data and indices (note: this task is somewhat linked with 2.3).
2.5. Assist with the preparatory work needed for GEO Mountains session on paleoscience (ahead of the PAGES OSM in 2022), and help us identify and establish closer links with the paleoscience community and help ensure that paleo data pertaining to mountain regions is discoverable, accessible, and useable
3.4. Assist with the development of training and educational materials related to i) the drivers, processes, and impacts of environmental, ecological, and societal change in mountain areas, and ii) how to access and use relevant data and information, to inform and build capacity in local communities.
3.X: Assist with the identification of areas in which existing resources (e.g. data, model outputs) can be applied to respond to policy needs (e.g. SDG Indicators)
For the time being, I am simply interested in being kept abreast of GEO Mountains news and developments
I have an existing project or projects that align well with the objectives and principles of GEO Mountains, and would like this / these to receive recognition by GEO Mountains
After approval by the GEO Mountains Co-leads and in consultation with the advisory core group, this could, for instance, enable the projects to be listed/summarised on the GEO Mountains website and promoted or disseminated by GEO Mountains in various ways (e.g. policy briefs, blog posts, Twitter, etc.). In return, one idea is that GEO Mountain would provide permission to use our logo and a line of text such as "This project is associated with and/or contributes to the goals of GEO Mountains". This would also be a great assistance to the coordinating role and expectations placed upon GEO Mountains to ensure the legacy and connection to relevant important past and ongoing projects are also sustained into the future.
Please briefly describe any additional tasks that align well with the objectives of GEO Mountains you consider important and may like to see in a future iteration of the Implementation Plan
