This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
These video modules introduce the conceputs and vocabulary of estuary ecology using American Sign Language. Five videos are available for the following topics: Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise.
This video showcases an expo about classroom-tested science lesson plans created for VA SEA by science graduate students. The VA SEA Project is currently supported by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Virginia Sea Grant, and the VIMS Marine Advisory Program.
The Fisheries Resilience Index (FRI) is a self-assessment tool developed for fishery industry leaders and businesses.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Brita Jessen and Dr. Matt McCarthy on July 18, 2019, summarizing the results of work using advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018.
This guide serves as a step-by-step tutorial to help anyone to be able to do shoreline erosion assessments using this common software.
This collection of resources was produced by Eric Sparks' team as documentation of the procedure they used to create their own wave gauges during their 2016 Collaborative Research project.
These fact sheets provide information on a variety of wetland plants that may be used for shoreline restoration projects. Each plant fact sheet includes pictures, listed environmental tolerances, informational websites, and helpful tips for planting.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Lydia Olander and Sara Mason on June 26, 2019, summarizing results of work with the North Carolina and Rookery Bay NERRs to develop models of oyster reef and mangrove ecosystem services, efforts to apply these models to specific restoration sites at these reserves, and use of the models as a way to think about standardized monitoring of ecosystem services outcomes across the NERRS network.
This report summarizes the results of a collaborative research effort that evaluated a range of living shoreline projects in South Carolina. The results and guidance are intended to provide agency partners with the science-based information for creating a regulatory pathway and developing project standards for living shorelines in South Carolina.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Ellie Flaherty, Kate Kirkpatrick, Trey Snow, and Syverine Bentz on May 23, 2019, summarizing results from an ecosystem service assessment performed as part of a SEAS Master's project.
The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.
This guide outlines a structured process to engage experts and develop timely, science-based solutions to environmental problems. The FAST process provides an iterative, weight-of-evidence approach for these experts to reach general agreement around technical recommendations.
This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.
This briefing document presents outcomes and findings from a science transfer project that developed and led role playing simulation exercises to help community leaders and stakeholders explore options for addressing flooding and other climate-related risks in South Carolina.
