What is OzEWEX?

OzeWEX is the Australian Energy and Water Exchange initiative. We are a non-profit volunteer organisation that is part of the international Global and regional Energy and Water Exchanges project (GEWEX). Our goal is to promote and increase measurement, understanding and prediction of the water and energy cycles and related variables over the Australian continent. Examples of important related variables include vegetation dynamics and ecosystem carbon fluxes.

OZEWEX aims to achieve its goal by promoting and facilitating data collection and sharing; collaborative research activities across organisations, and engagement between researchers, research users and research managers.  Data brokering, collaborative research experiments, and workshops are considered important means.
