AusLTER - Three Parks Savanna Fire-Effects Plot Network
The Three Parks Savanna Fire-Effects Plot Network extends across three national parks (Kakadu, Litchfield and Nitmiluk) in the Top End of the Northern Territory. The fire monitoring program comprises two complementary components: satellite based mapping of fire events and on-ground assessment of change in biota at a set of permanent plots. Temporal visits are as follows: • 6 months (fire occurrence), • 4 months (fire mapping), • 5 years (vegetation), • opportunistic (fauna). Between 2012 and 2018 the Three Parks Savanna Fire-Effects Plot Network was a member of Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN), Australia, a facility of the Australian Government's Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN).
