Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

Journal Article

This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is facilitating the development of a collaborative research agenda to study the advantages and disadvantages of storm surge barriers on the Hudson River Estuary.

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Sarah Nuss of the Chesapeake Bay-VA Reserve on May 31, 2018 about her 2015 Science Transfer project seeking to create a network that supported the transfer of graduate student science to K-12 educators in Virginia.

Tool

This document provides guidance to those wishing to use the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH") - a decision support tool which guides users through a series of questions to calculate numerical climate vulnerability scores for ecological habitats.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project where five reserves are are applying trainings and materials previously developed by the Jacques Cousteau Reserve and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities. 

Factsheet
Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where Chesapeake Bay, Virginia Reserve staff and partners from the Virginia Institute of Marine Sciences created the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance (VA SEA) to generate K-12 science lesson plans and train graduate students on science communication. 

Website

This website contains information and resources from a 2012 Collaborative Research project that sought to reduce the vulnerabilities of Maryland's Deal Island Peninsula area to the impacts of climate change by creating partnerships between communities, decision-makers, and scientists. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Lisa Auermuller in which Jacques Cousteau National Estuarine Research Reserve and Rutgers University collaborate to streamline coastal resilience tools, data, and techniques in New Jersey. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to enhance resilience on Maryland's Deal Island by building a stakeholder network and integrating research to understand how different management practices will impact marsh and community resilience.

Webinar Brief

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.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that is designing and implementing a marsh research program to inform future mosquito management control actions in New Jersey.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that is developing standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data. 

Tool

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.

Report

This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is enabling five reserves that have been participating in the Successful Adaptation Indicators and Metrics project to refine and share lessons and resources they've developed with the full Reserve System.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2016 Science Transfer project that is supporting the development of new, innovate visitor displays at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas, Mission-Aransas, and Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserves.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that is designing and applying predictive models that will evaluate different approaches to managing the Piermont Marsh on New York's Hudson River.
