Who owns Australia? (Aboriginal, pastoral, private etc.) - The Guardian

Dr Laurence Troy, of the University of Sydney, was one of three researchers who worked on a 2012 report for the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation, which developed a framework for analysing national patterns of ownership change, aggregation and fragmentation of agricultural land. “I see [ownership] as a central question in how our society operates,” Troy says. “There is a lot of wealth and power tied up in property … it is important for a whole load of transparency around the structure of property and who owns property.” The report began as an attempt to track the fragmentation of rural land through housing developments and subdivisions into lifestyle blocks.

We also observe population growth rates and density rates in particular areas. By observing past and present settlement patterns, we can observe the impacts of change on different Australian communities. See image 1 European landing and its impact. Natural disasters.

Antarctic webcams. The Australian Antarctic Division operates webcams at its four permanent stations: three on the Antarctic continent at Mawson, Casey and Davis, and the other at sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.

Antarctic webcams

The icebreaker Aurora Australis has a webcam which operates when the ship is on hire to the Division for scientific and resupply voyages in the Southern Ocean. There is also a daily construction timelapse video for Australia’s new icebreaker, Nuyina. In addition, the krill cam gives an insight into life in the Division’s marine research aquarium where scientists study the the physiology, behaviour and reproduction of krill. Weather data is collected by automatic weather stations operated by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and AAD personnel at the stations. This data is also held by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre. Street View Treks: Egypt – About – Google Maps. Great Wall of China Travel Guide & Tours.
