NSF funds Planning Meeting to form GNOMO

At the September 2014 Organization of Biological Field Stations (OBFS) annual meeting, an ad hoc committee formed to explore interest by existing member field stations in a mountain observatory network.

Finding strong interest, a steering group scheduled a two day meeting to create a Global Network of Mountain Observatories, just prior to the 2015 OBFS annual meeting.

The National Science Foundation has funded this planning meeting (Award #154475), which will be held September 13-16, 2015 at the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory in Gothic, CO.
