Upcoming Events and Volunteer Spotlight

We invite you to join us on September 28th and 29th from 9-11AM MT for TGRR's first annual workshop. This virtual event will take place on Zoom in two-hour sessions over the course of two days. Before the event begins, three pre-recorded tutorials will be made available on the TGRR website concerning key data science applications and models supporting transboundary groundwater forecasting and decision-making, an introduction to the theoretical foundations of system dynamics and how it can be used to advance TGRR, and a tutorial of best practices to manage this information to ensure that resources are findable, accessible, interoperable, and reusable (FAIR). Community questions and discussions will be encouraged throughout the workshop.

The first day of the workshop will focus on group discussion about TGRR's vision, mission, and goals for the Network of Networks; we will identify key data and knowledge resources of participating networks. The second day will feature a collaborative systems mapping session and a career development panel.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Welcome Tadele Dagne to the TGRR network!

The TGRR team is proud to present our first volunteer-focused spotlight article which places emphasis on an extraordinary volunteer and their efforts in supporting the TGRR network and its outreach.

All volunteers are a part of the ever-expanding TGRR Slack Channel.
Join now to connect with Tadele and create new collaboration opportunities!
Tadele Dagne studied for his first degree in Geology in Ethiopia and completed his MS in Applied Remote Sensing for Earth Science at the University of Twente located in the Netherlands. He currently works as a remote sensing and GIS expert at DH Consult, which is a private company in Ethiopia focusing on water resource studies. Previously, he worked as a graduate assistant in the Department of Geology at Arba Minch University.
Currently, he is working on a groundwater potential mapping project in Ethiopia. Dagne explains that the project areas are located in the arid and semiarid part of the country where access to safe and clean water is limited. More importantly, the areas currently under investigation are normally affected by climate change, and one of the aims is to locate climate resilient water wells using remote sensing, GIS and geophysical techniques.
"I am excited to join the wonderful and broad TGRR team. Specifically, I volunteer on the repository team and focus on finding resources to add to it. As a part of the TGRR team, I intend to collaborate with data scientists and water modelers and at the same time I look to obtain an internship and/or job opportunities related to GIS, remote sensing or geoscience." - Tadele Dagne
