The Equator Project Research School and Mentoring Network: evaluated interventions to improve equity in geoscience research

Natasha Joanne Dowey, Anya Lawrence, Munira Raji, et al.

Published: 2024-03-26
Subjects: Education, Physical Sciences and Mathematics

There is a well-documented racial and ethnic diversity crisis in Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) subjects in the Global North that leads to inequities in who does environmental research. The Equator project set out to increase participation and retention of UK-domiciled Black, Asian and minority ethnic students in GEES research by developing evidence-based, ring-fenced, fully [...]

HydroRTC: A Web-Based Data Transfer and Communication Library for Collaborative Data Processing and Sharing in the Hydrological Domain

Subjects: Education, Engineering

The exponential growth in data generated by satellites, radars, sensors, and analysis and reanalysis from model outputs for the hydrological domain requires efficient real-time data management and distribution mechanisms. This paper introduces HydroRTC, a web-based data transfer and communication library designed to accelerate large-scale data sharing and analysis. Leveraging next-generation web [...]

Co-constructing ‘third spaces’ for engagement between minoritized community groups and environmental scientists

Richard Holliman, Geeta Ludhra, Clare Warren, et al.

Published: 2024-02-27
Subjects: Education, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences and Mathematics

The demographics of environmental and Earth scientists are not representative of the UK’s multicultural society. We sought to widen diversity through two related engaged research projects, 'Walking the Walk' and 'Landscape Stories'. This paper offers a critically reflexive account, based on the methodology of duoethnography, of how we co-constructed a ‘third space’ for these projects. We sought [...]

Subjects: Education, Engineering

Natural and anthropic hazards derived from climate change are endangering heritage and society. Geoheritage is vulnerable. Nowadays we are witnessing the destruction of monuments with high emotional significance due to wars, but climate change is also contributing to the loss of the same cultural heritage. Prevention is often the best way to protect geoheritage from disappearing and society is [...]

Occurrences, distribution and sources of Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products (PPCPs) in the mangrove dominated estuaries in the central part of the Indian Sundarbans, a world heritage site.

This study aimed to provide the baseline report on the occurrence of five emerging contaminants namely Phenols, Triclosan, NSAIDs, Phthalate and Parabens under pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) in the surface water of Indian Sundarbans estuarine system. The emerging contaminants of PPCPs were investigated from the two estuaries in the central of Indian Sundarbans namely Thakuran [...]

Stones that tell stories

Subjects: Education, Engineering

When a historical building, monument, or cultural heritage artifact is affected by a natural or anthropic event, the first reaction is to recover and restore them to maintain our heritage for the next generations. If they are made of stone, some are completely destroyed, but it is often still possible to recognize the facts that made them a cultural item. In many cases, the marks of violent [...]

Empowering the Next-Generation Climate Scientists: Insights from the 2023 Forecasters’ WEB (ForWEB) Exchange Program/Hackathon at KNUST, Ghana

The program aimed at equipping students with knowledge, practical skills, and a collaborative ethos for addressing the [...]

Machine-Learning Approaches for Assessing Aerosol Optical Depth (AOD) in Ghana, West Africa

Jesse Gilbert, Jeffrey N.A. Aryee, Mary Jessie Adjei

Published: 2024-01-08
Subjects: Education, Medicine and Health Sciences, Physical Sciences and Mathematics

In the field of environmental health, assessing air pollution exposure has historically posed challenges, primarily due to sparse ground observation networks. To overcome this limitation, satellite remote sensing of aerosols provides a valuable tool for monitoring air quality and estimating particulate matter concentration (PM) at the surface. In this study, we employ two predictive models to [...]

A Systematic Review of Machine Learning Algorithms in Groundwater Level Simulations and Forecasting
