ANU Water and Landscape Dynamics develops new ways to measure and predict water resources, natural hazards and landscape health.
Outcomes of enjoyable 7yr of research with the @bnhcrc summarised in our report featured @PreventionWeb. While our main project is finished, the BNHCRC has funded the development of the high resolution version of the AFMS. https://t.co/gh1a4O0efr

Important new #ClimateChange research using TERN from @ANUFennerSchool @anu_wald 👏
The work relied heavily on TERN's 🇦🇺-wide vegetation biomass data & LiDAR laser scanning forest data products 🛰️🌳🌿 Another exciting use of TERN & #NCRISimpact 😀
Every year in Australia, nature grows 8 new trees for you — but that alone won't fix climate change
We counted the number of standard trees in Australia. It turns out that since 1990, we've actually been gaining trees faster than losing them.
ANU & @Optus have joined forces to develop a revolutionary national system that aims to detect #bushfires early & put them out within minutes🔥🧯

"A revolutionary approach to eliminating the risk of devastating bushfires" @Optus and The Australian National University @ANUmedia are developing a national system to detect bushfires and put them out within minutes. Congrats to @Myebra12 and team!
ANU-Optus Bushfire Research Centre of Excellence
Australia is experiencing unprecedented extreme fire conditions associated with prolonged drought, high temperatures and strong winds. This extreme we...
A new ANU centre will target bushfires through satellites, GPS-guided water gliders and infra-red cameras. via @brewski01
Satellites, GPS-guided gliders to target bushfires
The ANU and Optus are collaborating to identify and suppress bushfires before they get started
After months scoping the research agenda, I welcome today’s announcement of the ANU-Optus Bushfire Research Centre of Excellence
@UNSW @jasonpeterevans Read the new study ‘Local and Remote Drivers of Southeast Australian Drought’, led by @ourANU PhD candidate Chiara Holgate (@hydroholgate), with Prof. Albert Van Dijk of @anu_wald, and @UNSWScience Professors Jason Evans and Andy Pitman, @ClimateExtremes.
Local and Remote Drivers of Southeast Australian Drought
Southeast Australian droughts are driven by circulation anomalies that reduce moisture inflow and a lack of precipitation‐generating mechanisms Mois...
Our own Professor Saul Cunningham quoted in this latest @nature piece, about how Australian environmental scientists increasingly feel under pressure to downplay research findings.
Ever wondered where Australia’s rainfall comes from? Or what causes droughts in the Murray-Darling Basin? Check out what we found! @ozewex_org @BOM_au @ClimateExtremes @TheBasinPlan @anu_wald
We looked at 35 years of rainfall and learnt how droughts start in the Murray-Darling Basin
To fully understand why droughts begin, persist and end, we need to answer the question: where does Australia’s rainfall come from? It may seem ...
Should you always trust satellite observations? We found inconsistencies in seasonality trends between several NDVI datasets. Check out our latest publication for full detail.
Well done @zhaoli2509 on your Mid-Term Review seminar. So good you got great results from your field experiment despite the challenges of running such an investigation under the 2020 circumstances!
