Under the recently released 2020 Research Infrastructure Investment Plan, TERN will receive an additional $5.89M in 2022-23. The funding will allow TERN to continue integrating data from its multi-scale ecosystem observatory and to support TERN’s participation in global ecosystem research infrastructure initiatives.
Sharing your data to ensure provenance and promote re-use and citation—in other words, making it FAIR—just became a whole lot easier with the launch of a new, streamlined ISO compliant version of our data submission tool, SHaRED.
With this year’s Ecological Society of Australia conference just started, we take the opportunity to highlight some TERN-related activities during the event. Learn how to publish your research data via TERN; join the citizen science symposium, or Zoom into one of a number of exciting talks by TERN staff and stakeholders.
For this month’s site feature, let’s journey to Te Waipounamu, the South Island of New Zealand. The Ashley Dene OzFlux site is located in one of New Zealand’s large dairy regions, on the Canterbury Plains, and its data are essential contributions to research projects on the carbon, water and nitrogen exchange of dairy forage systems.
Thank you for your input into the scoping of a national environmental predictive research capability for Australia. Many and diverse stakeholders were consulted in drafting the proposal and we can now bring you up to date on the latest activities and strategic direction of the National Environmental Prediction System (NEPS) Scoping Study.
Welcome to our post-2020 Australian Federal Budget TERN newsletter. Some of our community have been predicting over the past months that with an economic recession, national bushfire recovery costs and the unknown aftermath of COVID-19, long-term financial commitment to research infrastructure would be affected. But thankfully, it seems that may not be the case…
With the halfway point of TERN’s current NCRIS grant upon us and consultations for the 2021 Australian National Research Infrastructure Roadmap fast approaching, we take the opportunity to capture some of the thoughts of two key TERN Advisory Board members on the future direction of Australia’s terrestrial ecosystem observatory.
We thank the botanists at Australia’s regional, state and national herbaria for their expertise, ensuring TERN’s open data accurately documents the diversity, distribution and state of the nation’s flora. Join our field botanists, at one of the first TERN monitoring sites established, as they re-survey the environment a decade later and remember the legacy of renowned botanist, David Symon.
TERN’s open-access data analysis tools have enabled researchers to put together a massive 13-year weather dataset to better understand the relationships between the environment and human behaviour. Meet the latest group of researchers using TERN’s free cloud-based virtual desktop, CoESRA, and learn how you can use it too.
The borders might be closed but collaborative environmental science is buzzing in Western Australia. Find out how the west is leading the way in piloting new ways to assess ecosystem health, stress and function, starting with an exciting new biodiversity monitoring capability.
