Project name TERN AusCover satellite remote sensing data products.
Project description
The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN, http://www.tern.org.au) is an NCRIS/EIF funded data initiative to collate and publish ecosystem research data. AusCover is a TERN facility that delivers calibrated satellite data and ground validation information in the form of biophysical image maps and land cover products for the Australian continent. A selection of base satellite and airborne remote sensing datasets are also required in the collection to allow efficient reprocessing when new data or methods become available. Note: One description will not fit for all the data products proposed in this application. Each data product will have different description consisting of type of data, spatial and temporal scale.

Dataset name TERN AusCover satellite remote sensing data products. • Green land cover (NDVI-EVI) • Fractional cover (green vegetation, non-photosynthetic vegetation, bare ground) • Fraction of absorbed PAR (photosynthetically active radiation) • Burnt area • Forest cover • Land surface temperature • Surface reflectance • Broad ecosystem maps • Field data for validation (leaf area index, vegetation 3D structure and biomass, spectral reflectance) • Airborne LiDAR and hyperspectral over field sites
Dataset description
The AusCover data products are published under the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) Initiative, an NCRIS/EIF funded activity, with collaboration between state and federal government departments and agencies (including Geoscience Australia and Bureau of Meteorology) and national research and educational institutions (including CSIRO and a number of universities). The data products are of continental scale and finer scale for detailed validation activities. The products are not only useful to the remote sensing community but also to other applications where validated remote sensing data can provide important information on vegetation condition and change across a range of temporal and spatial scales.
