Dr Mark Grant will present an overview of the TERN observatory and explain how to access its free services including data, research and management tools, data infrastructure, site-based research equipment and researcher networks. He will also talk about data and collaborations in the air quality monitoring space.

Australia’s land ecosystem observatory

TERN collects environmental data and samples from around Australia by doing field surveys, using remote-sensing technologies such as drones and satellites, and by monitoring specific sites across the country in great detail. TERN shares these data to enable Australia’s world-leading research on climate change, biodiversity, water and soil. 

General meetings are usually held at The Hut, 47 Fleming Road, Chapel Hill, on the fourth Wednesday of each month from February to November.

The Annual General Meeting is usually in April, at the start of the April general meeting, with the April talk immediately afterwards.

  • Please join us for refreshments and networking from 7:00 pm.
  • Meetings commence at 7:30 pm. Presentations usually run for about an hour including questions, with refreshments and informal discussions afterwards.
