Public outreach materials with information about the health risks posed by mosquitoes and how people can protect themselves
These teaching modules for middle and high school educators is focused on the biology, ecology, and impacts of climate change on mosquitoes and their habitats.
This journal article describes a new approach for statistically modeling boat wakes, which can help managers better understand how boat traffic impacts shoreline erosion and sediment transport.
This data resource includes marsh vegetation, water level data and modeling outputs from a project that examined how Piermont Marsh in New York buffers the impacts of storms.
This article, published in JGR Oceans in 2020, describes the use of a high-resolution model of water and sediment dynamics used in the Coos Bay estuary in Oregon to assess how 150 years of modification have altered sediment storage and transport.
This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.
This lesson plan will introduce high school AP Environmental Science students to the concepts of sunscreen runoff and the implications it can have on nature. Students will apply sunscreen water to classroom plants and then draw conclusions about the ecological impactshttps://sciren.org/.
This curriculum resource book, developed by Duke University Maine Lab, describes a series of water quality activities for high school classes, including background material and worksheet handouts.
