The TERN SuperSites network has goals relating to Scientific, Education and Public Outreach outcomes.
The scientific goals relate to enabling a better understanding of continental scale ecology through long-term and intensive ecosystem studies at SuperSite locations across Australia that provide calibration and validation to remote sensing technologies and assist TERN to engage the scientific community with continental scale datasets.
The SuperSite education goals are to provide infrastructure and tools for students and educators that allow rich and diverse training opportunities for the next generation of ecological and ecosystem scientists.
Public outreach activities aim to promote public understanding of ecosystem sciences and the various Australian biomes studied by the SuperSites. Long-term data collected at the SuperSites will enable natural resource managers and the public, make informed decisions on ecological issues at local to continental scales.
