Federal investment in TERN, via the NCRIS programme, is bearing fruit for Australia’s industry sectors. TERN is facilitating science that is enabling sustainable and enhanced productivity of our food, fibre, fuel and natural resource based industries and is offering greater efficiency and effectiveness in environmental assessment and management.
>35 years of satellite-derived time-series biophysical map products are now freely available. Capturing seasonal, episodic and historical changes in land-cover, and the impacts of extreme events, the data are invaluable for Australia’s environmental management industry and are already being used by researchers and government programs.
In 2050, which aspects of ecosystem change will we regret not having measured? New research, completed thanks to TERN’s Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN), has assessed what needs to be done to meet Australia’s ecological information needs by 2050 and what long-term infrastructure will be required.

In this edition of the TERN eNewsletter we showcase just some of the ways in which TERN infrastructure is central to a number of significant areas of economic activity. We highlight the links we’re cultivating between the science and research fraternity and industry sectors for improved societal and economic benefits nation-wide.
TERN’s final NCRIS II (EIF SuperScience) report is now available. The document provides an overview of all that has been achieved by TERN since its inception in 2009.
