TERN Australia (powered by AEKOS)
AEKOS is the data repository component of TERN Eco-informatics. Their metadata standard is RIF-CS (the Australian National Data Service standard), but we intend to use EML for the DataONE MN:
and use GMN as the MN stack.

- NodeIdentifier changed from urn:node:AEKOS to urn:node:TERN
- Subject changed from AEKOS - Australian Ecological Knowledge and Observation System to TERN Australia (powered by AEKOS)
- Status changed from Planning to Ready
AEKOS is providing the technical expertise for the development of the TERN Member Node. Initial offerings are from AEKOS, SuperSite, and LTERN with EML, and the plan is to add more content as DataONE provides support for other metadata standards (i.e. ISO 19139, RIF-CS, etc.)

- MN Description changed from The Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) connects ecosystem scientists and enables them to collect, contribute, store, share and integrate data across disciplines. to TERN is Australia’s land ecosystem observatory. TERN observes and measures the cause and effect of ecosystem change—from site to continental scale—and delivers data streams that enable environmental research and management.

HISTORY (re: Alison Specht)¶
AEKOS was the name of the Eco-informatics facility of TERN. It was established by TERN (the only initiative other than ACEAS, the synthesis centre that was established by TERN). The person driving that has left, and Siddeswara Guru and the eco-informatics team (with David Turner and Ben Sparrow etc) has restored the alignment with TERN.
So! Hope that helps. DataONE did a great patch with AEKOS, as it adopted a rather novel approach for data organisation.
TERN (primarily with the eco-informatics facility) is currently working with the Atlas of Living Australia (ALA) previously led by Donald Hobern to share data.
