Conduct Research at TERN Sites
TERN’s network of sites is well equipped with a huge variety of monitoring devices to measure ecosystem change across the continent. TERN welcomes co-use of sites by researchers.
Many TERN sites offer accommodation, storage and other facilities for wider use by educators and researchers. If you are interested in using TERN infrastructure please contact the TERN Project Office in the first instance. After this, you will be put in touch with the relevant TERN platform members to process your request. This process is streamlined and potential users of the field based infrastructure should know within 1-2 weeks (as long as there are no ethics issues) if their proposed activities are approved.
Once researchers have completed their studies and journal publications have been completed, these researchers are encouraged to publish their data with TERN data repositories, under licences of their choice. The centralised storage of monitoring and independent research data adds value to the long-term monitoring data and provides valuable context for future studies.
