Upcoming events:


OzFlux Workshop and Conference 2022

  • Data Workshop
  • 13th–17th June 2022
    Daintree Rainforest Observatory

    The data workshop provides the OzFlux community the opportunity to learn the latest data processing procedures using PyFluxPro. In addition, mornings are typically spent in lectures, demonstrations and discussions about best practices for site selection, establishment of a flux site and data-quality control, post-processing, partitioning, gap-filling and statistical analysis. Campbell Scientific Australia has confirmed their participation with an opportunity for a demonstration on setting up an eddy covariance flux system.

    There is a strict limit of 20 spaces (including teaching staff). First in, best dressed.

  • Conference
  • 21st–22nd June 2022
    Rydges Esplanade Resort, Cairns

    The OzFlux conference provides a celebration of the science related to flux measurements, modelling and remote sensing in Australia and New Zealand. Presentations at the OzFlux conference cover a wide range of associated fields in which OzFlux data and PIs are working, including but not limited to the areas of ecosystem ecology, hydrology, climatology, plant ecophysiology and agronomy.

  • Field trip
  • 23rd June 2022
    Cow Bay and the Daintree Discovery Centre

We plan to provide the workshop and the conference in a blended format (in-person and on Zoom). We will try the best we can to accomplish this, but technical difficulties can arise.

AsiaFlux 2022

AsiaFlux 2020 has been postponed due to COVID-19 and is now being held in:
September 2022
Sarawak Tropical Peat Research Institute, Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

iLEAPS–OzFlux Joint Conference 2021 now in 2023

February 2023
Auckland NZ

This will be the sixth open conference of the Integrated Land Ecosystem–Atmosphere Processes Study (iLEAPS) and the 15th annual meeting for the Australian and New Zealand Flux Research and Monitoring (OzFlux) network.

The conference will be delivered in a hybrid context, that being a mix of physical and virtual attendance. Further details of how this will run will be announced during the year.

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.
