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 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.
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.
The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.
This guide outlines a structured process to engage experts and develop timely, science-based solutions to environmental problems. The FAST process provides an iterative, weight-of-evidence approach for these experts to reach general agreement around technical recommendations.
This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.
These risk assessments detail how climate could change in four New England municipalities over the 21st century, outlining each town's key climate change risks and potential adaptation options to address these risks. These assessments were produced as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project.
These case studies summarize findings from a 2012 Collaborative Research project studying climate change adaptation and risks in four New England communities.
These stakeholder assessments capture opinions about climate change and adaptation held by diverse stakeholders in four New England municipalities as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project.
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 factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
This website contains information about and products stemming from a 2018 salt marsh resilience workshop hosted by the New England reserves.
This document describes and synthesizes discussions and notes from an April 2018 workshop hosted by the New England reserves on salt marsh resilience.
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 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.
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.
