TERN is Australia's land ecosystem observatory. We observe, record and measure critical terrestrial ecosystem parameters and conditions for Australia over time from continental scale to field sites at hundreds of representative locations. This information is standardised, integrated and transformed into model-ready data, enabling researchers to discern and interpret changes in land ecosystems. Understanding ecosystem change, the rate of change, and underlying causes is essential for effectively protecting and managing Australia's environment and the many services it provides.
