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. 

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 2016 Science Transfer project that extended the reach of a watershed education and training project, Climate Education for a Changing Bay, in Virginia.

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. 

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. 

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.

K-12

These lesson plans are classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance by graduate students.
