This project overview describes a 2016 Science Transfer project where staff members from the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve are being trained in the application of the CCVATCH tool to assess the vulnerabilities of local coastal habitats to climate change.
This project video illustrates how role playing simulations were used to foster dialoge around climate change callenges and opportunities in South Carolina.
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 briefing document presents outcomes and findings from a science transfer project that developed and led role playing simulation exercises to help community leaders and stakeholders explore options for addressing flooding and other climate-related risks in South Carolina.
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 report summarizes the findings of a 2016 Science Transfer project that assessed the vulnerabilities of intertidal marsh sites in North and South Carolina.
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."
These resources contain information about stakeholder workshops hosted by the 2012 Collaborative Research project team, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina." These resources include meeting agendas, presentations, meeting notes, and other materials.
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 spreadsheet was designed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners and designers properly size rainwater harvesting systems.
This spreadsheet is a useful tool for maintaining various types of green infrastructure, including permeable pavement, green roofs, and rainwater harvesting systems.
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 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 project overview 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 project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.
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.
