You are invited!
Attend the Kickoff Event for the National Science Foundation funded Transboundary Groundwater Resiliency Research (TGRR) network. This is an opportunity to provide your input on the challenges and needs for more effective transboundary groundwater research and management. This project focuses on the nexus of systems science, hydrology, social science, and data science. Simultaneous English and Spanish translation will be available. All are welcome. The virtual, interactive event will take place over Zoom on Tuesday, November 16, 2021, from 9:00-10:00 AM MT.
The TGRR Network
Climate change threatens water sustainability in connected groundwater and river systems. Groundwater is being depleted in an unprecedented way that is intensified in transboundary aquifers. This AccelNet design-track project creates a new international network of networks that connects U.S. [ and international networks of hydrology, social science, data science, and systems science to establish a novel transboundary groundwater resiliency research approach. These new linkages will enable the infrastructure for transboundary groundwater resilience research and deliver conceptual advances that the next generation of water scientist leaders can build on in the future. The novel approach posits that identifying key data and system drivers would make significant progress towards producing research that catalyzes transformative change for transboundary groundwater systems.
1. Catalyze transboundary groundwater resilience research to address groundwater scarcity and its natural and societal impacts
2. Identify the capabilities of the convergence approach to determine key questions and fill critical gaps in knowledge and resources
3. Support the development of students and early-career researchers who will lead the next generation to collaboratively integrate water, data, and systems science to address transboundary groundwater scarcity
