MtnClim 2016 Agenda
The 2016 Mountain Climate Conference will continue its decade-long tradition of excellence working at the intersection between climate and a host of other scientific disciplines including hydrology, ecology, and glaciology. This 7th Mountain Climate (MtnClim) Conference will explore the central theme: Mountains Without Snow: What are the Consequences? In sessions on current science themes, climate policy and decision-support, MtnClim 2016 will look for opportunities to interweave discussions of the roles snowpack plays in water resources, power generation, ecophysiology, and human communities, with particular focus on the question: How ready are we to foresee the full range of consequences of mountains without snow?
As with prior MtnClim meetings, improving understanding of how drought impacts mountain systems and the landscape below will also be woven throughout the program.
Broadly, the week will be organized as follows:
- The conference will begin on Monday evening preceded by an optional field trip
- Tuesday will focus on physical, chemical, geological, and biological aspects of mountain climate science
- Wednesday will specifically address the Mountains Without Snow theme with interdisciplinary sessions and panels throughout the day
- Thursday will feature the Airborne Snow Observatory, early career scientists, and a workshop for natural resource managers.
