TERN Robson Creek Rainforest
TERN Robson Creek Rainforest is a field site in Ecosystem Processes (https://www.tern.org.au/tern-observatory/tern-ecosystem-processes), a field platform within the Australian Terrestrial Ecosystem Network TERN (http://www.tern.org.au/). TERN Ecosystem Processes aims to answer both network wide and site-specific science questions through long term monitoring using both sensor technology and classical field methods. The Robson Creek Rainforest site lies on the Atherton Tablelands in the wet tropical rainforests of Australia at 680-740 m elevation. It is situated in Danbulla National Park within the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. The climate is seasonal with approximately 60% of rain falling between January – March and the landform is moderately inclined with a low relief although the Lamb Range rises sharply to 1276 m asl immediately to the north of the plot. The traditional owners in this area are the Tableland Yidinji People.
