Biography
Ecosystems provide us with essential services such as carbon sequestration, water, clean air and biodiversity, valued at US$33 trillion p.a. globally. My contribution has been in understanding how ecosystems (and the services they provide) respond to climate change and disturbance to provide a fundamental basis for their future management.
I have developed and led the Land-Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes and Interactions (LEAPI) group which is a skilled multidisciplinary research team undertaking a research program to determine how the Australian terrestrial biosphere will respond to climate and land use change. The focus is on the major ecosystem cycles (water, carbon, and nitrogen), biotic composition and ecological community structure for understanding changes in the provision of ecosystem services and the impacts of people and a changing climate.
I have provided an important foundation and tools for addressing policy-relevant questions posed by the potential future impacts of change and provide options for sustainable landscape management.
Key research
My program bridges across three themes and these are applied to different key ecosystems (savanna, urban, woodlands, tall forests and agriculture):
1. Terrestrial ecosystem-atmosphere research: Provide reliable estimates of greenhouse gas cycling (CO2, CH4, N20) and water budgets over important Australian ecosystems using intensive biogeochemical observatories (Flux Towers) that measure fluxes of water, CO2 and energy.
2. Integration and scaling: Reduce the uncertainty of estimates and scale up to regions.
3. Modelling and synthesis: Predict the responses of Australian ecosystems and their biophysical and biogeochemical cycles, to changing environmental conditions and land use change.
Key discipline areas : Primary areas of interest include micrometeorology, boundary layer climatology, land/atmosphere interactions, land surface modelling, remote sensing and global change (earth systems science).
Micrometeorology: Fundamental understanding of the interactions between the surface and atmosphere can only come about through rigorous measurement and modelling programs. I use various micrometeorological techniques to measure exchanges of heat, water and carbon dioxide from the surface. Future research may include measurements of CO2 isotope and isoprene fluxes. I am establishing a long-term energy and CO2 flux-monitoring site in the old growth Mountain Ash forest in Kinglake to investigate long-term carbon and water budgets in natural ecosystems.
Climate change: An over arching interest in global change and earth system interactions. Primary the links between the biosphere and climate change. Both physical and biogeochemical changes in the landscape will feedback to affect the carbon cycle and greenhouse gas emissions. Through micrometeorological techniques we can measure the sources and sinks of carbon in systems.
Land-atmosphere interactions: The land surface is vital in driving climate on multiple scales. Changes in vegetation type, soil parameters, and land/water interfaces are likely to feedback to alter climate. Current research includes investigating the interactions between fire, vegetation and climate. I also utilise land surface models and remote sensing in teaching and research.

• ARC Linkage, LP140100871, Daly E, Rudiger C, Webb J A, Beringer J, Walker J, Dresel P E, Morse-McNabb E M & Camporese M, 2014-2014, $186,351. Summary: The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of different land use implications on water resource and land productivity. The project aims to use a paired-catchment study that compares the carbon and water balances in two catchments in the high rainfall zone in south western Victoria. One catchment is used prevalently for grazing, while the other is predominantly planted with blue gums. The main objectives of this project are: to quantify the effect of different agricultural land uses on the catchment water balance; to estimate the trade-off between carbon sequestration and water resources related to tree plantations and pastures; and to develop models at different spatial scales of catchment water balance for land-use management.
• ARC Future Fellowship, ‘Vulnerability of Australian savannas to climate change and variability‘, FT110100602, Beringer J, 2012-2016, $782,168. Summary: Australian savannas are productive and are culturally and biologically significant landscapes, but they are vulnerable to climate change. This project will determine savanna function (carbon and water balance) for the present and assess how sensitive they have been to past climate variability. The project will then address how they may respond to future climate change.

Summary: Of Australia’s freshwater resource, 70% occurs in north Australia. The Daly catchment in the NT is largely an intact ecosystem but one earmarked for agricultural development. This will involve clearing of native savanna vegetation for improved pastures, with a new plantation forestry industry also likely to develop. The greenhouse gas emissions from clearing events will be tracked through time and shifts in carbon and nitrogen pools examined over time since clearing. The water resource implication of deforestation and subsequent afforestation with potentially high water using, exotic tree species will also be assessed. Data produced will enable calibration of modeling tools for these land systems to develop sustainable production systems.

•ARC LIEF “Airborne hyper-spectral scanning for advanced monitoring and assessment of vegetation and water properties“ LE0989062, A/Prof Jorg Michael Hacker, A/Prof Jason Beringer, A/Prof Jeffrey Phillip Walker, A/Prof Megan Mary Lewis, A/Prof Mervyn John Lynch, Dr Lindsay Beaumont Hutley, Dr Patrick John Baker, Dr Edoardo Daly, Prof Ian David Bishop, Dr Michael Jonathan Stewardson, Dr Peter Rhoderick Fearns, Dr Stefan Maier, 2009, $ 517,000. Summary: This proposal seeks to establish a new capability for airborne hyper-spectral scanning with applications in a wide range of environmental assessment and monitoring. Together with the already existing airborne full-waveform resolving LIDAR, L-Band microwave scanner, and synthetic aperture RADAR, hyper-spectral scanning will enable unprecedented determination and assessment of vegetation types; canopy health; canopy height; canopy and understorey architecture; very high-resolution (“cm-range”) ground topography (even if obscured by vegetation), and properties of water bodies and the top soil. All of these sensors systems are flown on state-of-the-art low-cost aerial platforms
•ARC Linkage “More bang for your carbon buck: carbon, biodiversity and water balance consequences of whole-catchment carbon farming“ LP0990038,Dr Ross Michael Thompson, A/Prof Jason Beringer, Dr Timothy Richard Cavagnaro, Prof Ralph Charles Mac Nally, Dr Patrick John Baker, Mr Mark Eigenraam, Mr Leon Metzeling, 2009-2013, $ 708,000. Summary: Carbon farming as a land use will impose significant changes on Australian landscapes. This project will explore the consequences of carbon farming at a whole catchment scale. The opportunities to use planned carbon farming to complement existing reserve systems and riparian restoration activities will be appraised. By exploring a series of future scenarios for uptake of carbon farming we will determine the best way to manage this change to maximise carbon sequestration and biodiversity outcomes.
•ARC LIEF “MEGA – Mobile Ecosystem Gas-exchange Analyser for Australian landscapes” LE0882936, Dr SK Arndt (The University of Melbourne) ; Dr S Livesley; A/Prof J Beringer, 2008, $ 135,000. Summary: This Mobile Ecosystem Gas-exchange Analyser will be able to continuously monitor water, energy, carbon and nitrogen exchange in a multitude of uniquely Australian ecosystems: from low-canopy forests (up to 20m) and afforested plantations to wetlands and agricultural grazing, cropping, horticulture and viticulture systems. This research capacity provides benefits and opportunities such as 1) community resource 2) monitoring tool for carbon and water budgets 3) mobile process laboratory 4) data for model validation. The susceptibility and vulnerability of ecosystems to changing temperature and extended drought will be determined.
•ARC Discovery “ Patterns and processes of carbon and water budgets across northern Australian landscapes: From point to region ” DP0772981 Dr J Beringer ; A/Prof JM Hacker; Prof K Paw U; Dr BG Neininger; Dr LB Hutley 2007-2009, $668,000.
Summary: Quantifying carbon sources and sinks and understanding the underlying processes are pre-requisites to informed policy decisions, especially as nations seek to develop strategies to manage carbon emissions and sequestration. Australia is unique because of its poor soils and high climate variability and is likely to have patterns and process of carbon that are globally different. We focus on Australia’s Top-End region, but will develop tools/methods that can be applied to other important Australian hot-spots. This project will support the existing National Carbon Accounting System by providing new information on processes and spatial variability and regional budgets of carbon and water budgets that underpin our international commitments.
•ARC Linkage “ Reengineering a dynamic vegetation model to explore the stability of Australian terrestrial carbon” LP0774996 Prof AJ Pitman; Dr J Beringer ; Prof W Steffen; Dr G Richards; Dr Y Wang, 2007-2009, $192,000,
Summary: Overseas models do not represent Australian biophysical processes well: our flora and fauna are unique and our soils are old and nutrient poor. In contrast, the National Carbon Accounting System (NCAS) is a world-class framework for estimating current carbon processes. By building NCAS expertise into an overseas model of soil and vegetation processes we can develop the capacity to increase our confidence in future projections of carbon and vegetation change. Our proposal, linking Universities, CSIRO and the Australian Greenhouse Office establishes a team that is internationally competitive. It will enhance local expertise and local model development to ensure national policy development is underpinned by world-class science.
•ARC Linkage “ Integrative assessment of disturbance and land-use change on total greenhouse gas balance and nutrient cycling in savanna ecosystems ” LP0774812 Dr LB Hutley; Dr J Beringer ; Dr SK Arndt; Dr S Livesley; Dr GD Cook; Dr K Butterbach-Bahl, 2007-2009, $190,000 Summary: Climate change and variability is expected to have an impact on the NT environment and economy. This project will enable NT specific calibrations of climate variability-land use models, such as the National Carbon Accounting System. The NT Government will have access to a high quality database and calibrated models relating to greenhouse gas emissions as a function of land use change. The project will improve estimates and management of GHG and provide a basis for the NT to potentially exploit future carbon-trading initiatives or GHG abatement schemes as fundamental data describing emissions as a function of land use will be available. This is of national significance given the size of the savanna biome in Australia.

Summary: The climate system integrates the atmosphere, oceans, cryosphere, biosphere, land-surface and the fluxes of energy, water and biogeochemical quantities between these elements. Changes in climate affect Australia dramatically: for example, the cost of the recent drought exceeded $10 billion. To enable internationally competitive climate system research, networking is required to enhance our national capability and our international connectivity. We will explore the establishment of a Climate System Network by facilitating communication between Universities, government agencies and CRCs. The Climate System Network will enable new climate-related questions relating to the sustainability of the Australian physical and Human environments to be explored.
