Although GLORIA represents a globally operating site-based network, regional chapters emerged in the course of the implementation process and the operation of the sites. These (sub)-continental or national-scale GLORIA networks are organized to fit into the specific requirements of integration into related regional research and monitoring activities.
|South America||The largest regional network comprise the tropical Andes ( GLORIA-Andes network).|
|North America||The mountains of western North America (CIRMOUNT), Great Basin mountains of California and Nevada (GLORIA Great Basin), US National Parks with GLORIA sites.|
|Asia||The GLORIA networks of central to eastern Himalayan mountains and of the Indian Himalayas.|
|Europe||LORIA-Europe and Rete GLORIA Italiana.|
Notwithstanding all GLORIA sites share a common protocol on the global scale.
