20 years of biodiversity and farm health research at TERN monitoring sites will help ANU researchers and farmers better integrate the environment and farming to deliver increased productivity, improved conservation outcomes and more resilient farming communities.
TERN’s Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia continues to be used as regional role model and template in international cooperative soil information management. The Grid has recently been on show at the FAO in Rome and used in a suite of skill development and training projects with our near neighbours and beyond including Indonesia, Taiwan and Russia.
Australia is a global leader in Earth observation thanks in part to TERN technologies, infrastructure and tools. Our ability to continue supporting Australian science communities in undertaking global impact science has been strengthened thanks to recent collaborations on the world science stage.
You’re invited to a special science symposium that will showcase the impact of 10 years of investment into environmental infrastructure, and provide a platform to foster new collaborations and shape future innovations to enable ongoing influence.
This month's eNewsletter features biodiversity & farm health research; Australia's Earth observation technology and infrastructure; digital soil mapping tools and global collaborations; and the upcoming NCRIS Science Symposium in Canberra.
2017 sees TERN reach a milestone of 582 ecosystem surveillance plots sampled across our rangelands and tall forest ecosystems. Vegetation, soil and landscape data from over 500 plots are now openly accessible via TERN’s open access data infrastructure and represent an invaluable resource for ecosystem science in Australia.
