TGRR Seminar Bi-Monthly Series - August

Featuring Roslynn King

This bi-monthly series provides perspectives from leading global researchers on how systems science and data science can contribute to transformative water research. Join us on August 23rd for a one-hour TGRR seminar series presentation by Roslynn King. 
A 20-minute Q&A session will follow King's 40-minute presentation.
Roslynn King is a PhD candidate within the Marine EM Laboratory at Scripps Institution of Oceanography located at the University of California, San Diego. Her research focuses on the use and development of marine controlled-source electromagnetic (CSEM) tools toward mapping and characterizing a variety of resources of geologic or anthropogenic origin located on the continental shelf.
Roslynn King preparing to map offshore aquifers using marine controlled-source electromagnetic tools.
Her presentation, Freshwater below the ocean floor and how to find it, will cover recent developments in marine controlled-source electromagnetic technologies toward mapping submarine aquifers progressing from known aquifers offshore New Jersey to previously unidentified water sources offshore California. This talk will address how these data can be used to better understand how offshore aquifers form, influence their environment, and can potentially be used as a resource.

Welcome Akin Kuye to the TGRR network!

The TGRR team is proud to present our 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 Akin to discuss the relevance of the environment and public health to create new collaboration opportunities!
Akin Kuye received his BS degree with honors in Geology and Environmental Hazards from Derby University, England. He earned his MS degree in Environmental Technology with Integrated Water Management at the School of Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London. He is interested in the water policy, regulations, quality, and safety of both surface and groundwater resources.
Kuye has performed fieldwork worldwide and uses geoscientist knowledge and technology to provide environmental solutions. To do this, he identifies dire environmental concerns and utilizes a nature-based approach alongside the application of viable technological processes. Currently, he is examining how to best apply geospatial tools and remote sensing to identify heavy metals distribution on contaminated land.
"I am with the Communications team in TGRR. I intend to work on suggestions for the web pages and science communication content. My goal of being part of the TGRR team is for the collaboration and networking of multi-dimensional professionals to bring research to a level where all can contribute to a common goal." -Akin Kuye
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!
