Multimedia | September 2019

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.

Tool | September 2019

The Fisheries Resilience Index (FRI) is a self-assessment tool developed for fishery industry leaders and businesses.

Webinar Brief | September 2019

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. 

Management Brief | September 2019

This draft management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, was distributed to attendees ahead of the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

Webinar Brief | August 2019

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.

Webinar Brief | July 2019

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.

Multimedia | July 2019

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.

Tool | July 2019

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.

Tool | July 2019

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.

Report | June 2019

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.

Multimedia | June 2019

This video illustrates a flooding event that affected a shoreline section of North San Pedro Road, in northern California. In this case, a large rain storm and run-off from the watershed could not drain through undersized culverts and led to road flooding.

Factsheet | May 2019
Thesis | April 2019

This 2019 report describes the findings of a University of Michigan SEAS Master's project which provides insights for KBNERR regarding current ecosystem services valued in Kachemak Bay using a socio-cultural, place-based, ecosystem services framework.

Webinar Brief | March 2019

These slides summarize a webinar given by Maggie Pletta of the Delaware Reserve on March 12, 2019, about the development of new, innovative visitor displays at three reserves, partnering with students at the University of Delaware to produce gesture-controlled, educational computer games.

Webinar Brief | February 2019

These slides summarize a webinar given byAlison Watts of the University of New Hampshire and Bree Yednock of the South Slough Reserve on February 14, 2019, featuring results from a pilot eDNA monitoring program being developed and tested at several National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) sites in New England and Oregon.

Multimedia | January 2019

This video was produced by a 2016 Science Transfer team to describe the concept of coastal blue carbon and explain why it is important in mitigating climate change. 

Multimedia | January 2019

This rack card was created by a 2016 Science Transfer team in Texas to provide the public with information about wetland ecosystem services and to introduce the concept of natural capital. 

Tool | January 2019

This document summarizes a December 2017 workshop hosted by Mission-Aransas Reserve that explored ways to generate a return on investment from wetland preservation and restoration projects in Texas. 

Report | January 2019

This document summarizes communications and mental modeling stream research conducted by a 2010 Collaborative Research team on perceptions, beliefs, and values of riparian ecosystem services and shoreline protection among stakeholders and residents within a Maine watershed.
