Journal Article | May 2020

This paper, published in Remote Sensing in 2020, describes a new satellite-based habitat mapping technique that was tested at Rookery Bay NERR in southwest Florida. 

Project Overview | May 2020

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project where Rookery Bay Reserve staff and University of South Florida researchers are partnered to update and create maps of mangrove habitat to measure changes over time. 

Journal Article | April 2020

This paper, published in International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, describes results of three different mangrove mapping methods to evaluate the impacts of Hurricane Irma, a Category 3 storm that affected southwest Florida in September of 2017. The approach was tested on a very high resolution WorldView-2 satellite image.

Management Brief | March 2020

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the March 17, 2020 panel webinar on Blue Carbon.

Data | February 2020
Tool | February 2020
Multimedia | February 2020

This story map explains mangrove habitat change at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve from 2010-2018, illustrating mangrove damage and recovery from Hurricane Irma.

Webinar Brief | December 2019

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.

Multimedia | September 2019

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.

Webinar Brief | July 2019

These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Brita Jessen and Dr. Matt McCarthy on July 18, 2019, summarizing the results of work using advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018. 

Project Overview | May 2019

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.

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that developed a science-based framework for stakeholders to use in making decisions about water resource management in the Rookery Bay Estuary.

Project Overview | December 2018

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

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. 

Project Overview | November 2018

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.

K-12 | October 2018

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

Project Overview | October 2018

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.
