Please feel free to send notices that you would like GTOS to disseminate to gtos@fao.org.

Development of a mountain module in TEMS

GTOS is currently developing a Mountain Module in the Terrestrial Ecosystem Monitoring Sites (TEMS) database. The module will be developed in collaboration with the Mountain Group (FORC) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) under the direction of Thomas Hofer.

The objective of the Mountain Module is to facilitate access to mountain relevant data and information. The module will contain networks and sites, relevant to the mountain issues. In addition, it will provide a list of primary indicators, data holders, links and maps. This module will allow users (scientific community, policy makers and the broad public) to search sites which are specific to mountain issues and will link global environmental and socio-economic data for mountain ecosystems.

If you have relevant information, data or links or would like to be involved in the development of the mountain module please contact the GTOS Secretariat.

Existing TEMS modules can be viewed at: www.fao.org/gtos/tems/modules.jsp


For further details on GTOS please to contact the GTOS Secretariat (gtos@fao.org)
