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.

Factsheet | May 2019
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.

Tool | December 2018

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.

Report | December 2018

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. 

Tool | December 2018

This game developed as part of the 2011 Collaborative Research project "Planning for Florida's Rising Tides" introduces participants to sea level rise adaptation strategies and provides an understanding of the participants' preferences for different strategies.

Tool | December 2018

This pre-survey is part of a role-play game developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project on sea level rise adaptation in Florida. Each player is assigned a different stakeholder role and fills out this pre-survey before starting the game, which serves as a foundation for helping participants understand each others' perceptions of sea level rise adaptation strategies. 

Factsheet | December 2018

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

Factsheet | December 2018

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.

Report | November 2018

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

Journal Article | November 2018

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. 

Tool | November 2018

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

Factsheet | November 2018

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.

K-12 | October 2018

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

Factsheet | October 2018

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.

Factsheet | October 2018

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 | October 2018

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 | October 2018

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. 

Webinar Brief | May 2018

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.
