Environmental Chemistry and Microbiology Unit (ECMU) comprises an interlocking suite of expertise, services, and laboratory capabilities. We provide options for research and consultancy that are of unique benefit to agencies and industry operating in northern Australia.
RIEL drives research collaboration and adoption through its participation in a wide range for activities and programs. Here's a showcase of some selected examples.
The NAFI site was developed by the former Tropical Savannas Cooperative Research Centre and north Australian fire managers and is supported by the Northern Territory Government. It sources relevant fire management data, such as hotspots (locations of recently burning fires as deteced by satellites) and fire scars (maps of recently burnt country as detected by satellites) and displays them as maps tailored to north Australian conditions.
