Our workshop on “Participatory Modeling of Mountain Social-Ecological Systems” at the Rock Springs Resort, Bend, Oregon has begun! The workshop is led by Anne Nolin, Jessica Thorn, Julia Klein, Robin Reid, & Catherine Tucker.

The broader objectives this workshop are to explore and evaluate transdisciplinary modeling frameworks for mountains, to identify relevant questions and scenarios to explore with models, and to conduct synthesis modeling across mountain sites worldwide using a Bayesian Network modeling approach.
