The Consortium for Integrated Climate Research in Western Mountains (CIRMOUNT) is a collaborative, interdisciplinary consortium dedicated to understanding climates and ecosystems of western North American mountains. CIRMOUNT's goal is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplines and institutions to monitor and understand climate-driven changes in the unique landscapes that define western North American mountains, and to respond to the needs and challenges of western society for mountain resources imposed by climate change. CIRMOUNT is sponsored by a diverse group of agencies, universities, and institutions, and is endorsed as a pilot project of the International Mountain Research Initiative.

MtnClim 2016, CIRMOUNT's 8th biennial climate conference, will be held October 17-21, 2016 at the Sleeping Lady Resort in Leavenworth, Washington. More information is available on the MTNCLIM 2016 website.
Archives of past MtnClim conferences are available in the CIRMOUNT archives.

CIRMOUNT produces a biannual publication, Mountain Views. The Spring 2016 issue is the most recent.
