Seminar: Australia’s Terrestrial Ecosystem Network – sharing and sustaining ecosystem data - Prof Stuart Phinn (School of GPEM/TERN)
- Full Description:
A consistent conclusion from a number of national and international reviews of science across the multitude of disciplines concerned with understanding the earth’s ecosystems is the urgent need to ensure past and new data are now stored and shared appropriately.
Australia’s Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (www.tern.org.au) is addressing this challenge by enabling Australia’s ecosystem science and management communities to collect, share, and synthesise data to advance our understanding and management of ecosystems.
This presentation explains how TERN, as one of Australia’s most significant coordinated investments in ecosystem sciences, is providing a national enduring resource that enables scientists, managers and students to: (1) search and download long term ecosystem data sets; (2) publish data sets with licences that allow appropriate sharing and citation; and (3) integrate and synthesise data and knowledge.
This presentation is relevant to anyone collecting, analysing, monitoring and modelling data from terrestrial ecosystems, including atmospheric, terrestrial and coastal environments (…….especially if you are submitting ARC Proposals).
Stuart Phinn is a Professor of Geography at The University of Queensland, and is currently Associate Science Director of TERN. For the past 16 years he has built and run a research centre that develops applications and trains students and professionals for using satellite image data and field survey data to map and monitor changes in environmental properties from local to continental scales.
