An exciting new data sharing partnership between NASA and TERN will help deliver precise information on the water and carbon exchanges everywhere on Earth’s surface, vital for climatic forecasting.
This month we feature data on the nation’s estuaries alongside recently released data on a variety of ecological attributes along two of our subcontinental monitoring transects - the ‘SWATT’ in Western Australia and the ‘TREND’ in South Australia.
Welcome to the 50th edition of the TERN eNewsletter.
