A huge network of optical fibre runs underground across Australia, delivering the internet on light pulses. Optical fibre is very sensitive to vibration, making it an option for recording the Earth’s tremors.
Weather satellites provide raw data for weather and climate models. EUMETSAT collects this raw data and distributes the processed data to weather institutes in its member countries, such as the Dutch KNMI. The institutes themselves contribute to the processing of the data. How does this work, how are the data distributed, and what is SURF's role?
Game-changing technology for remote sensing Earth Observation and national-level data visualisation to measure productivity of pasture land, the presence of pollutants, and the impacts of natural phenomena such as erosion or droughts.
Digital Earth Australia, a ground-breaking open source platform, transforms spatial data and satellite imagery into easily accessible tools for planning and decision making, and relies on AARNet for moving data around the research community.
Thanks to a new agreement between CENIC and the City of Alameda in Northern California, students will get to work with first-of-its-kind data captured from autonomous ocean vehicles studying everything from marine wildlife to climate models.
