TERN infrastructure, open data and research services are being used by some of Australia’s most successful scientists, spread across many universities and institutions. Three Australian Research Council Centres of Excellence—Australia’s most prestigious foci of research expertise—rely on TERN to deliver world-leading climate science and vegetation biology; and make the most appropriate environmental decisions.
A new data repository has been launched that provides open access to in-depth environmental data collected as a result of education activities conducted on the Great Barrier Reef. Together with our partners we’re compiling a comprehensive record of the reef that researchers and regulatory agencies can use to monitor changes, and that anyone can use to learn more about this wonder of the natural world.
Users and uses of TERN data are proving to be as diverse as the data themselves. Join us as we showcase one TERN user’s engaging visual data story of 100 years of platypus sightings using Tasmanian State Government data openly available via TERN.
TERN is currently seeking feedback from the ecosystem science community to help it identify priorities for the future and to ensure our services meet your needs. If you’d like to contribute to this process please take the short (5-10 min) survey.
Going to EcoTAS this month? TERN is proud to be sponsoring the conference but even more pleased to see that our infrastructure and data has enabled so much of the research featured at this year's conference. Here's your guide all the TERN enabled research featured at this year's conference. We're looking forward to seeing you there...
TERN is leading concerted multi-national efforts to create an integrated network of networks that would observe and assess the current state and trajectory of ecosystems worldwide. Building on last year’s TERN-hosted meetings, we’ve just finished further discussions in China, Vietnam and France with leaders of analogous ecosystem observing networks from around the world.
