ANU Science on Location

As Australia’s national university, we conduct research across the whole country. From Tennant Creek to Tasmania, from Cape Tribulation to Culcairn, ANU researchers contribute to our national scientific knowledge.

Collecting data is valuable, but collecting long-term data is indispensable. A long-term data set allows scientists to see a clearer picture and make more accurate long-term predictions. It also helps policy-makers make informed decisions about the future of our nation.

ANU Science On Location tells the stories of ANU researchers who have conducted this kind of long-term research in diverse locations across Australia. With projects running for 30 years or longer, these places of incredible natural beauty also produce some of the best data in the country. Say goodbye to Canberra, and welcome to ANU Science On Location.
