GLOBAL OBSERVATION RESEARCH INITIATIVE IN ALPINE ENVIRONMENTS

The continental coverage:

The main mountain ranges, especially the most extensive systems and their position within the continents are important for site selection.

Asia and the Americas are of particular importance.

In Asia, the large mountain ranges are in the interior and have a highly continental climate.
The Americas present a unique case with their almost uninterrupted north-south chains of mountain ranges extending from Alaska to Patagonia.
