OzFlux 2021

The ecosystem processes workshop and conference in Australia and New Zealand

1st-2nd November 2021.
Online and free

The conference will showcase research investigating ecosystem processes in agricultural and natural ecosystems in Australia and New Zealand. It offers a forum for microclimatologists, ecosystem modellers, ecologists, ecophysiologists and social scientists from across the region to share their latest research. OzFlux is an ecosystem research network that provides the global ecosystem research community with standardised observations of energy, carbon and water exchange between the atmosphere and key terrestrial ecosystems. This knowledge is critical to inform decision making and risk assessment relating to land use and climate change impacts on ecosystems. OzFlux 2021 features a wide range of themes from the latest developments in instrumentation and software to spatial scaling and modelling, greenhouse gas emissions, drivers of carbon sequestration and food security.

Conference themes:

  • Ecosystem processes and functioning (flux studies, long-term ecosystem dynamics, studies that combine multiple approaches to understand or describe ecosystem function or ecology)
  • Soil processes and non-CO2 greenhouse gases (soil science, studies in agriculture, CH4 and N2O flux studies)
  • Modelling and ecosystem predictions (modelling studies)
  • Remote, terrestrial and novel sensing (studies using remote sensing, terrestrial sensors or novel sensors)
  • Data processing or technical advances (studies that describe novel methods or technologies for data processing)
  • Open forum (other studies)

Keynote speakers:

Format of conference: Zoom webinar

Previous Webinars:


Dr Peter Isaac and Prof. Elise Pendall

Estimating ecosystem respiration from flux tower and chamber data:
insights from Cumberland Plain External link

18th August 2021, 14:00 - 15:00 AEST

This talk uses the experiences at the Cumberland Plain Woodland SuperSite to explore methods of improving the quality of TERN OzFlux data and indicators of data quality. It also provides insight into the uncertainty inherent in data partitioning techniques. Reducing this uncertainty has contributed to a better understanding of the sensitivity of Australian ecosystems to climate warming.


Dr Jamie Cleverly

The ecological processes that shape Australia's ecosystems External link

4th May 2021, 12:00 - 13:00 AEST

In this OzFlux webinar, Jamie will discuss the inference of the ecological patterns and processes which shape Australian ecosystems. The webinar will showcase how measurements of fluxes, vegetation structure and ecological processes are being used to understand how and why ecosystem change occurs over minutes, days, seasons and years.


Dr Caitlin Moore

Bioenergy crop fluxes and an a-maize-ing conundrum External link

4th March 2021, 13:00 AEDT

As we enter an age of biofuel innovation, research efforts have focused on how bioenergy crops alter the carbon, water and energy cycles of the landscape.

With the growing push for more sustainable and clean energy sources, alternatives to the main bioenergy crops, such as corn and soybean, are likely to become more widespread in the future.

Dr Caitlin Moore of the University of Western Australia will present findings from her research, including data from long-term monitoring equipment installed in bioenergy and food crops, the impacts of land conversion on carbon and nitrogen cycles, and an a-maize-ing flux conundrum.
