Researchers using TERN infrastructure have, for the first time, found that repeated fuel reduction burns in temperate forests have little long-term impact on soil greenhouse gas exchange. The new findings fill an important information gap and provide new science to the ongoing debate surrounding prescribed burning targets in Australia.
More than 100 years of platypus observations for 277 waterways across the breadth of Tasmania are now available for download via TERN Eco-informatics’ ÆKOS data portal.
Field trials to test the robustness of new ecosystem condition monitoring protocols being developed under TERN’s 'Enhancing long-term surveillance monitoring across Australia project’ have just been completed. Results are helping create protocols to better define condition, and monitor and understand changes to the environment.
In our June newsletter we continue to explore how TERN’s infrastructure is being used to deliver on Australia’s National Science and Research Priorities, this month focusing on the Soil and Water priority.
TERN has partnered with the US’s DataONE to expand the discoverability of our data. TERN datasets can now be accessed using DataONE’s OneMercury search tool, increasing data sharing and opening up new opportunities for Australian ecosystem data to be used in new global science.
On 14 July a workshop on the Kepler Scientific Workflow System will be held at UQ in Brisbane. Scientists and researchers from all disciplines interested in data workflows are encouraged to attend.
