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).
This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.
This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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.
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.
This spreadsheet was developed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners in coastal South Carolina calculate rules for stormwater treatment and runoff reductions from their sites based on statewide rules and regulations.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project that is transferring a novel approach to climate adaptation planning developed in New England to a coastal county in South Carolina.
This resource collection contains: a custom a role play simulation (RPS) for communities in Georgetown County, South Carolina; a teaching note with instructions on how to run the simulation; and a report with results from the workshop.
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.
These resources are from workshops, focus groups, and surveys that a team from North Inlet-Winyah Bay and ACE Basin reserves used to scope their 2012 Collaborative Research project, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina."
This spreadsheet is a useful tool for maintaining various types of green infrastructure, including permeable pavement, green roofs, and rainwater harvesting systems.
This guide removes barriers to low impact development implementation in South Carolina by providing engineering tools, planning guidance, and case study examples that are relevant to the South Carolina coastal zone.
This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.
This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a protocol to accurately measure suspended sediment concentrations in tidal marshes, enhancing understanding of marsh accretion and informing marsh conservation and restoration.
This factsheet describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that piloted an approach for stakeholder-driven planning that communities in Florida can use to prepare for sea level rise.
This report describes the findings of a 2011 Collaborative Research project that investigated the Matanzas Basin's vulnerability to sea level rise in Florida and identified potential adaptation strategies.
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.
This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.
This report summarizes the findings of a 2016 Science Transfer project that assessed the vulnerabilities of intertidal marsh sites in North and South Carolina.
