After nearly two years in production, an invaluable collection of research using TERN’s national flux monitoring infrastructure and data has been completed and published in a special issue of the international journal Biogeosciences.
The special issue features 19 peer-reviewed papers presenting research into the biogeochemical cycling of carbon, water and nutrients in multiple ecosystem types at local, continental and international scales.
Using TERN-delivered flux measurements, models and remote sensing, the papers explore ecosystem dynamics such as productivity, respiration, evapotranspiration, and water-use efficiency within the context of climate fluctuations, meteorological drivers, seasonal change and management activities.
Many of the key datasets associated with these publications are openly available for download via TERN’s Data Discovery Portal.
The special issue is dedicated to the memory of Ray Leuning, one of the foundational members of the eddy covariance flux community and a driving force behind the establishment of OzFlux.
TERN’s ecosystem flux monitoring infrastructure, OzFlux, is part of an international network (FluxNet) of over 650 flux stations that provides continuous, long-term micrometeorological measurements for monitoring the state of ecosystems globally. TERN OzFlux is the Australasian component of this global network and delivers consistent observations of energy, carbon and water exchange between the atmosphere and the key ecosystems of Australia and New Zealand. It is a national partnership with significant contributions from universities and research agencies around the country and coordinated by CSIRO.
“OzFlux has been the catalyst for a significant advance in what we know of the land-air exchanges of carbon and water across a range of ecosystems and meteorological conditions,” says Dr Helen Cleugh, director of the CSIRO Climate Science Centre.
“OzFlux’s data, networks and analytical models are now being widely used in the research fields of ecology, plant science, forestry, meteorology and atmospheric science.”
The completion of this latest compendium of research is yet another example of how the networks and data being delivered by TERN are being increasingly used in diverse multidisciplinary research contexts. TERN infrastructure continues to catalyse advances in our knowledge of the land-air exchange of carbon and water across a range of ecosystems and meteorological conditions.
