Forests store more carbon than any other above-ground ecosystem on the planet. Just how much, though, is hard to know without cutting them down. Enter ‘virtual harvesting’, a non-destructive remote sensing technique for accurately measuring biomass that has just been undertaken at TERN’s tropical forest observing sites.
All that glitters is not gold when it comes to Australia's newest weed. The previously unrecorded species of clover, found during TERN’s survey of Australia’s alpine region, has just been identified as Golden Clover. Native to Europe and never found in Australia before, find out how Trifolium aureum was spotted and what the discovery may mean for our native ecosystems.
163 representatives from across the Asia-Pacific region, including TERN Australia, have committed to an ambitious action statement on achieving the global targets set by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Paris Agreement and Sendai Framework. The ‘Kyoto Statement 2018’ was formalised during October’s GEOSS Asia Pacific Symposium, a key forum for strengthening regional cooperation.
With this year’s Ecological Society of Australia conference kicking off at the end of November, it’s high-time to showcase all the TERN related events happening at the conference. Take part in the long-term research forum and our data workshop, learn about our data skills development program, or just drop by our booth and say hello.
The alpha release of the online platform brings you four key components: Workspace, Explorer, Tools & Support. TERN is proud to be a founding partner in this landmark infrastructure project that’s giving researchers easy access to big data and tools using Cloud and Virtual Laboratory technology.
TERN’s newly updated ‘Effective Field Calibration and Validation Practices’ handbook is an Australian first in providing detailed information for calibrating and validating remote sensing derived products to ensure they can be used for science and management applications.
