Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer Plunket of the North Inlet-Winyah Nay Reserve and Robin Weber of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on July 17, 2018 summarizing results from their assessments using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Journal Article

This article describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project in Exeter, NH that studied adaptive governance and climate change adaptation planning by evaluating stakeholder involvement in a local institutional setting.

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Annie Cox of the Wells Reserve on June 21, 2018 about her 2016 Science Transfer project that sought to help businesses in Maine self-assess their resilience to disaster.

Factsheet

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

Factsheet

This factsheets describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves. 

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. 

K-12

This high school STEM curriculum module related to the 2011 "Bringing Wetlands to Market in Massachusetts" project examines the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, nitrogen pollution, and the economic value of salt marshes as carbon sinks. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that examined the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, and nitrogen pollution and developed tools to leverage the “blue carbon” stored in wetlands to achieve broader management goals. 

Factsheet

This factsheet 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.

Case Study

This collection of case studies provide examples of vulnerability assessments conducted in Rhode Island using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Multimedia

These presentations were delivered at the Capitalizing on Coastal Blue Carbon conference in 2015, hosted by the Waquoit Bay Reserve to discuss the outcomes of their 2011 Collaborative Research project and implications for wetland conservation in New England and beyond. 

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.

Tool

This document helps guide coastal and land managers in understanding the ways by which coastal blue carbon can help achieve coastal management goals. 

Tool

This document outlines procedures to use the Methodology for Tidal Wetland and Seagrass Restoration, approved by the Verified Carbon Standard, to estimate net greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals resulting from restoration of coastal wetlands. 

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. 

Tool

This model is a power-law based model developed by using data for four different wetlands in Waquoit Bay and Great Pond estuaries, MA. It was developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Bringing Wetlands to Market in Massachusetts."

Report

This interim report summarizes a community meeting hosted by a 2013 Collaborative Research project team in Exeter, New Hampshire about how to prepare the town for a changing climate.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a model climate adaptation plan for Exeter, New Hampshire to help decision-makers address climate change impacts.
