These facilitation guides and job aids, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, provide tools and activities for each step of the process to develop and track metrics of adaptation success.
These case studies, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, show how particular communities have defined and tracked their progress on climate adaptation goals.
This climate adaptation planning toolkit compiles lessons learned by five National Estuarine Research Reserves. It is designed to help communities set goals and identify specific indicators to evaluate progress toward a climate resilient future.
This report summarizes key findings from a 2019 workshop in New York that examined the potential ecological and physical impacts of constructing a surge barrier to protect the New York/New Jersey Harbor.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the December 2019 webinar Leveraging NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program Data for Wetland Research and Management. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains example work from project teams working with System-wide Monitoring Program data, and advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams interested in working with monitoring data.
This video showcases an expo about classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance (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.
This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level 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 project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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 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 tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.
This project overview 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.
This project overview 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.
This project overview 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.
These lesson plans are classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance by graduate students.
This project overview 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 project overview 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.
