RDSI has developed a monthly newsletter which aims to inform stakeholders throughout the research community of progress on the RDSI project and highlight the significant strides made by all the eResearch Service Operators that work with the project.

RDSI is helping the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) to assemble datasets for modelling future climate scenarios, plant growth and water resources.

Dr Bradley Evans is a Senior Research Fellow at Macquarie University and Director of the Ecosystem Modelling and Scaling Infrastructure (eMAST), a facility of TERN.

RDSI and VicNode are helping the Hoffmann lab at The University of Melbourne to provide insect genomes and population genomic data to the global research community. The fruit fly and mosquito genomes will contribute to understanding how species adapt to climate change and to stopping the spread of Dengue Fever.

RDSI and Intersect Australia are helping the Garvan Institute of Medical Research to provide Australian genomics researchers with cost-effective whole human genome sequencing.

RDSI and QCIF are helping to make more than 20 years of ocean and terrestrial documentary footage available to researchers.

RDSI, TPAC, and volunteers around the world help weather @ home ANZ generate datasets to study the impact of climate change on Australian weather.

RDSI helps Dr Jeremy VanDerWal make climate and biodiversity models accessible

Dr Jeremy VanDerWal at the Centre for Tropical Biodiversity and Climate Change at James Cook University (JCU) creates models to study how climate change will affect bird and animal populations in Australia and around the world.

RDSI investment opens the door for Geoscience Australia to provide access to Earth Observations from Space

Since 2005, Dr Adam Lewis and the team at Geoscience Australia's National Earth & Marine Observations Group have worked to maximise the value and impact of images taken from space by earth observation satellites.

RDSI-funded storage at Intersect is helping Professor David Griffith at the University of Wollongong contribute to an international effort to understand changes in greenhouse gases and ozone in the atmosphere, and how these may affect our climate, our environment, our weather, and our health.

Airborne Research Australia (ARA) have been collecting data from the air for thirty years. Based at Flinders University, the research institute's four aircraft, three scientists and pilots, and remote and in situ sensing instrumentation are employed by a variety of research projects.
