This open-access article examines how a proposed surge barrier for New York harbor might perform over time as sea level rises and storms become more frequenty.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the November 2020 webinar Measuring Climate Adaptation Success and Progress: Introduction to the Resilience Metrics Toolkit
This factsheet describes the process of environmental DNA (eDNA) water sampling in estuarine systems, and provides specific methdology recommendations to facilitate detection of invasive species.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that facilitated the development of a collaborative research agenda to study the ecological and physical impacts of storm surge barriers on the Hudson River Estuary.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
These five related carbon storage, greenhouse gas flux and environmental variable datasets were generated by the Bringing Wetlands to Market research team and used to develop a coastal wetland greenhouse gas model for New England.
This article, which appeared in Global Change Biology, discusses findings from a study that quantified total ecosystem carbon stocks of major tidal wetland types in the Pacific Northwest.
These four case studies give examples of four best practices for conflict management in collaborative science. They were developed as part of the Resilience Dialogues project to share lessons learned about effective collaboration from within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.
This curriculum was developed as part of a 2018 Science Transfer project to share knowledge and lessons learned about managing conflict in collaborative science.
These guidance documents and videos provide field and lab protocols for preparing for, collecting and fitering water samples for use in eDNA analyses.
These resources from a stakeholder visit to the Stariski Creek Meadows headwaters in July 2019 were developed as part of a project to improve groundwater management on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
This webinar from the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Seminar Series presents methods and outcomes from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
These tidal wetland carbon stocks and environmental driver data were collected as part of the 2016-2019 collaborative research Pacific Northwest Carbon Stocks and Blue Carbon Database Project.
This project overview describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project where Waquoit Bay Reserve is working with end users to test the applicability of a previously-developed model to accurately predict greenhouse gas fluxes across a wide range of coastal wetlands.
These datasets and statistical analysis codes model surge barrier effects on the Hudson River estuary, developed as part of the 2018 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.
This geodatabase of groundwater on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, can be used as a foundation for decision-making to determine the locations of aquifers and predict groundwater discharge to streams.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that created the web-based toolkit Resilience Metrics to share lessons learned on successful climate adaptation planning within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.
This webinar for decision makers presents findings from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
