Presenters: Will Edwards, James Cook University/TERN and Jo Owens, University of Southern Queensland
Will Edwards will introduce TERN’s SuperSites, their function and in particular, the science questions addressed at the Queensland SuperSites at Robson Creek, Longreach, Samford and the potential new site in the Burdekin. Jo Owens will then explain her research using TERN flux and satellite-derived data to improve evapotranspiration and groundcover modelling. Jo will also discuss how useful it is to have access to data on carbon and water exchanges from Queensland and how important the new TERN Burdekin flux tower site will be for future research that fills critical knowledge gaps.
Question and Answer time follows the presentations.
