Temperatures up, rainfall down, and the destruction of vegetation and ecosystems by drought, fire and land clearing continued. That is the main conclusion from Australia’s Environment in 2019, the latest in an annual series of environmental condition reports, released today.
To ensure that TERN delivers in-demand data and that our NCRIS grant is spent in the most efficient way possible, we’re consulting with our users to determine the future of LAI data collection at TERN sites.
New science using TERN assesses the impact land management intensity has on carbon stocks and flow, plant water use and heat stress. Read the results from 19 farm sites across Australia and New Zealand and find out how they could help agricultural enterprise optimise without compromising the environment.
In March we’re featuring Griffith University’s Environmental Futures Research Institute and research that’s developing solutions to facilitate clean, resilient and sustainable futures, and improved health and wellbeing of people.
TERN and its partners are developing a revolutionary soil moisture information system, which will help land managers better monitor drought, predict bushfires and floods and make highly informed management choices to improve agricultural productivity.
This edition we’re featuring the Australian National University’s Centre for Water and Landscape Dynamics and their work combining satellite observations, field data and prediction models …
How can environmental research infrastructure providers, including TERN and its field-based NCRIS siblings, limit the damage extreme events have on sensors and other globally important …
