Science for Decision-Making in Mountain Systems

The theme of this year’s MtnClim revolves around natural-resource management and decision making in mountain systems, and asks how researchers and practitioners can work together to develop information relevant to decision making. There will be a dedicated keynote and session addressing this theme as well as a panel discussion with land-use practitioners. The session will highlight examples of the promise and pitfalls of developing decision-relevant science in mountain systems along the continuum from use-inspired to fully co-produced.

The MtnClim research conference is sponsored by the Consortium for Integrated Climate Research in the Western Mountains (CIRMOUNT) and dedicated to mountain climate sciences and effects of climate variability on ecosystems, natural resources, and conservation in western North American mountains. MtnClim conferences feature invited and contributed talks, poster sessions, field trips, and working-group sessions.

Key features of the MtnClim Conferences include:

  • Invited oral sessions
  • Three keynote speakers (research and policy themes) on cutting-edge science themes and decision making
  • Early-career scientists’ session
  • Two panel discussions
  • Invited speakers on local issues of relevance
  • Contributed oral and poster sessions
  • Working group discussions
  • Discussion forums on action proposals, including interactions with local agencies
  • Field trips to research and/or management demonstration sites
