  1. 1. Soil and Landscape Grid of Australia– Data Delivery InfrastructureTERN Facility #9Presentation by Mike Grundy
  2. 2. The TERN Soil gridInfrastructure to move from ‘soil information’to soil spatio-temporal systems:Soil information which: • Is consistent, reliable, functional and comprehensive • Is at an appropriate scale and resolution • Describes soil variability in x,y,z (i.e. the soil volume) • Integrates with earth observation, climate biogeochemical models and monitoring systems • Improves the quality of ecosystem research • Reduces uncertainty in models, integrated systems and land management decisionsCurrent soil information does not meet this need – it does not provide the right kind of ‘infrastructure’
