TERN (University of Queensland), Australia’s land oberservatory: A national mangrove observing system

In a giant leap towards the creation of Australia’s first nationwide mangrove observing system, TERN has provided open access to decades of historical and newly acquired field and Earth observation data. These data alert scientists and managers to coastal environmental change, provide new knowledge on the causes and impacts of this change, and support the sustainable management of our immensely important mangrove ecosystems. The data also enhance Australia’s contribution to achieving the global Sustainable Development Goals.
