The Australian Government has adopted TERN’s standard protocol for field-based environmental monitoring to assess the rehabilitation of the Northern Territory’s Ranger uranium mine following its closure. Find out how eight new monitoring plots and skills training integrate with TERN’s long-established Kakadu research infrastructure to help ensure that the best possible environmental outcomes are achieved.
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes has independently analysed Australia’s data on land-atmosphere exchanges of energy, carbon and water collected by TERN and its partners, and found them to be perhaps the world’s most valuable observations for building and evaluating the land models needed for projecting future droughts and heatwaves. Read the analysis and find out more about these profoundly important data for global climate modelling.
TERN is developing Cloud and Virtual Laboratory infrastructure that’s enabling researchers to work effectively in the current big data era. From ecosystem risk assessments to the impact of extreme weather on dogs, find out how the diverse users of the TERN CoESRA Virtual Desktop are using this free, portable and powerful computational environment to run big data analyses and share their work.
TERN has received $400,000 of additional investment funding from the Australian Government to replace broken and outdated field sensors and environmental monitoring equipment.

The CSIRO invites you to take part in a survey to collect information about the collection of field data on pasture productivity in Australia’s rangelands. The information collected will be used by CSIRO to inform the establishment of a national field data network for rangelands pasture productivity monitoring and modelling.
