Webinar Brief | November 2019

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.

Report | October 2019

This report presents the outcomes of a community stakeholder process in which participants engaged in an expert-facilitated and community-based approach to develop sea level rise adaptation options for a low-lying road in China Camp State Park, along San Francisco Bay, CA.

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.

Management Brief | September 2019

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.

Multimedia | June 2019

This video illustrates a flooding event that affected a shoreline section of North San Pedro Road, in northern California. In this case, a large rain storm and run-off from the watershed could not drain through undersized culverts and led to road flooding.

Factsheet | May 2019
Website | January 2019

This website contains information and resources related to a 2013 Collaborative Research project studying sediment dynamics in tidal marshes in San Francisco Bay. 

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.

Factsheet | December 2018

This factsheet 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.

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 developed decision-support tools to help decision-makers better prepare for climate change impacts.

Factsheet | November 2018

This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project where a multidisciplinary team, led by the San Francisco Bay Reserve, is bringing together key stakeholders and decision makers to initiate adaptation planning for a portion of China Camp State Park. 

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.

Factsheet | October 2018

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. 

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.
