TERN’s infrastructure, collaborative networks, and expertise are being put to good use in a new project that will tackle one of the big issues in Australian ecosystem research and management: national ecosystem surveillance monitoring.
Sound science, and the decisions we make based on it, relies on reproducibility. A new joint project between fellow NCRIS capabilities, TERN and the Australian National Data Service (ANDS), aims to not only promote reusable data, but also reproducible and reusable analysis processes.
A collaborative team has created an open-source tool, called the Spatially Explicit Data Discovery, Extraction and Evaluation Service (SPEDDEXES) to allow users to more easily discover, extract and visualise national spatial datasets.
This month we explore a number of nationally significant projects that are using TERN to help strengthen our national capacity to generate knowledge and use it to advance our economic, social and environmental objectives.
Congratulations to professor David Keith and his team in the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) who were recently announced as 2014 Eureka Prize finalists. The IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Team have developed the first global standard for assessing risks to ecosystems.
