The NSW Office of Environment and Heritage has made use of TERN and the NCI’s data services to publish key data on past and forecast projections of severe fire danger across large parts of south-eastern Australia—vital information for improved hazard reduction and fire management policy and practice.
Data on the exchanges of heat, water and carbon dioxide between key Australian terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere collected by TERN OzFlux are now openly-accessible via the global flux measuring network FluxNet. We take a look at who’s downloading the data and what they’re doing with it.
The impact of TERN’s collaborative, multi-scale, and national approach to ecosystem science is once more on show with the release of a new National Biomass Library, National Biomass Map, and landmark high-resolution map products of woody vegetation height and cover, via TERN AusCover. These products result from a combination of national and international collaborations, drawing field and satellite data from across TERN’s network, to deliver more accurate and finer resolution information on the state of Australia’s information, as a game-changing platform that can assist research, management, policy, restoration and sustainable use of Australian ecosystems.

To showcase the diversity of TERN's end-user community, we continue to profile our users and, in this case, explore how TERN Eco-Informatics' data infrastructure is helping them work more collaboratively, efficiently and effectively. Come and meet some of them now:
Calling current and next generation ecosystem science researchers and land managers. Applications for training in the AusPlots Rangelands Field Survey Protocols are now open. Join the team in WA and acquire skills and practical inspiration that will enable better monitoring, understanding, and management of our vast and vital rangeland ecosystems.
