This article, published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment in 2018, synthesizes oyster restoration projects since 1964 on the US Atlantic and Gulf coasts and suggests a restoration paradigm to prioritize investment in sites that maximize economic and ecological benefits and minimize construction costs.
This infographic illustrates the role wetlands can play in removing total phosphorus from the water and ultimately help improve water quality and reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie. The infographic describes how the researchers estimated long-term phosphorus retention capacity for different types of wetlands in Ohio and provides suggestions as to how different audiences might be able to contribute to this effort.
The collaborative research project, Re-engineering Living Shorelines for High-Energy Coastal Environments, produced four datasets as part of their assessment of liviing shoreline installations at GTM Reserve in Florida.
In collaboration with several local partners, Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve conducted a study aimed at understanding different wetlands' long-term capacity for removing nutrients. Together, they produced this story map that demonstrates the importance of wetland services, explains different types of wetlands and management priorities, and summarizes how the team estimated the long-term phosphorus retention capacities of a variety of wetland types based on samples collected from sites in Ohio, including the Lake Erie watershed.
This webiste provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern Florida.
This factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.
This report summarizes key findings from a 2019 workshop in New York that examined the potential ecological and physical impacts of constructing a surge barrier to protect the New York/New Jersey Harbor.
This paper, published in Global Environmental Change, assesses outcomes of co-produced science based on an analysis of National Estuarine Research Reserve System funded projects from 1998 to 2014.
This proposal development tool provides a set of tips for collaborative research grant applicants to consider at the pre-proposal stage of the application process.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Jenni Schmitt and Jill Rolfe on November 4, 2019, summarizing the results of a collaborative stakeholder engagement process driving the modernization of land use plans in Oregon, and provideing a snapshot of the products and recommendations developed through the process.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the October 2019 panel webinar Conceptualizing and Designing Collaborative Science Projects. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains panelist advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams.
This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.
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 report presents the outcomes of a community stakeholder process in which participants engaged in an expert-facilitated and community-based approach to develop sea level rise adaptation options for a low-lying road in China Camp State Park, along San Francisco Bay, CA.
