Regional networks

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.
