05 australian supersites network current status of tern 28.03.12

  1. 1. TERN ASN Research Data Portal http://www.tern-supersites.net.auPresentation by: Michelle Ganeemail: m.gane@qut.edu.au ph: (07) 3138 2466

  5. 5. Driving Science Questions The key science questions being addressed at all ASN sites are:• What are the current stocks and fluxes of energy, carbon, water and nutrients between the terrestrial (and aquatic) ecosystem components and the atmosphere/hydrosphere/geosphere?• What are the current patterns and dynamics of terrestrial biodiversity (and aquatic)?
  6. 6. Overview The ASN data portal places an emphasis on multi- disciplinary research and will provide:• a secure repository of high-intensity, high resolution data• compatibility with international data systems• a standard interface for the ecosystem community to deposit both TERN and contextual data sets. http://www.tern-supersites.net.au/knb/
  7. 7. Underpins key Australian processes to help biophysical map unravel how ecosystems products and remote continuous, function sensing data time- long-term series, and associatedmicrometeorological field calibration and measurements to validation data atmonitor the state of continental scalesecosystems globally Trend analysis across network of biodiversity ASN indices Expected use bylandscape modellers to Data Portal help predict future distribution and biodiversity ecosystem models for applications at scales from landscape Enables researchers to management to carbon look at data in the Allows plot and faunal accounting and climate system and assess the data patterns in prediction effects of management dynamics to be traced or disturbance variability
  8. 8. Potential Users and Applications FNQ DERM; WTMA; Is forest connectivity needed Rainforest Cairns Regional Council for ecosystem resilience? SEQ DEEDI; Brisbane City Peri-urban pressure impacts Peri-urban Council on forest and water Great Western What areas in GWW should DEC be the focus of fire protection Woodlands Warra Tall Managing native forests to Forestry Tasmania Eucalypt ensure capacity to perpetuate Calperum DENA; Australian Landcare Conservation action. Regional Mallee Trust monitoring and management Alice National Groundwater Does depth to groundwater Mulga Initiative relate to ecosystem function?Cumberland Plains How does carbon fertilisation NSW State Government EucFACE effect eucalypt forests?
  9. 9. Status report• Repository running for 18 months• Linkage to other data repositories (OzFlux, ACEF) working on linkages to Auscover and AEKOS• Implementation of metadata feeds to the TERN portal• Implementation of metadata harvesting to ANDS FNQ Rainforest Supersite - 15 Live Data Packages SEQ Peri-urban Supersite - 18 Live Data Packages
  10. 10. Monthly usage since September 2011:Date Total No of Visits No of Unique Download Visitors Attempts1 - 23 Mar 2012 82 35 581 - 29 Feb 2012 99 36 771 - 31 Jan 2012 94 38 481 - 31 Dec 2011 35 23 161 - 30 Nov 2011 27 17 31 - 31 Oct 2011 56 27 381 - 30 Sept 2011 82 40 25
  11. 11. The Next Steps• Upload of TERN-EIF data sets from ASN• Continue to improve usability of portal including a new user-friendly interface for users requesting access to data• Allow for future ASN expansion from 5 to 9+ nodes
  12. 12. Create a researcher community • A community engagement program • Ability to discuss data sets (using Facebook) • Coordination with MSPN communicationsNew challenges • Management of acoustics data • High-resolution phenocams (with OzFlux) Acoustic sensor – SERF • Visualisation of live data streams • Micro-climate data (with Ozflux) • Freshwater (with Coastal) • DOIs for data citations • Improve the robustness of the platform • Connecting to DataONE Phenocam – Cape Trib
  13. 13. Post 2014The major factor influencing the survival of theASN data portal is recurrent funding.Strategy1) Pursue long-term funding for the portal throughthe Queensland State Government.If successful, approach State Governments of otherSupersites for matching contributions.2) Future DIISRTE developments Thanks
