Australian Supersite Network

Brief description

The Australian SuperSite Network (ASN) is a national network of multidisciplinary ecosystem observatories. The ASN includes ten SuperSites that each represent a significant Australian biome. The network covers all States and Territories and spans a wide range of environmental conditions.

Each SuperSite hosts an OzFlux tower, and researchers also undertake intensive collection of various ecosystem measurements including detailed data sets on flora, fauna and biophysical processes. Through this work, the ASN aims to improve our understanding of ecosystem response to environmental change. Work underway throughout the ASN also complements the capabilities of the Long-Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN).
