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.
These slides summarize a webinar given byAlison Watts of the University of New Hampshire and Bree Yednock of the South Slough Reserve on February 14, 2019, featuring results from a pilot eDNA monitoring program being developed and tested at several National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) sites in New England and Oregon.
The Communities, Lands & Waterways Data Source is an encyclopedic compilation of all available data describing the socioeconomic and environmental conditions in the Coos Bay area.
This document is a summarization of data that describe the environmental and socioeconomic conditions in Coos Bay's South Slough and Coastal Frontal watersheds in Oregon.
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 community vision, developed as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project, describes desired future conditions stakeholders and residents hope to see for the South Slough and Coastal Frontal sub-basins of the Coos Watershed.
This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that established the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds, a group of local stakeholders that represents diverse interests in Oregon's Coos Bay.
This website, created as part of a 2017 Collaborative Research project, describes a pilot program led by the University of New Hampshire and the NERRS to develop eDNA sample collection and analysis protocols.
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 2016 Integrated Assessment project that is looking at how to create a modernized land use plan for Oregon's Coos Bay Estuary that balances responsible economic development, social interests, and protection of natural resources.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project where researchers are working to fill information gaps that are critical to addressing management needs for Oregon's Coos Bay Estuary.
These lesson plans are classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance by graduate students.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This factsheet 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.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project where researchers are collaborating to pilot and refine DNA-based monitoring protocols that can be applied to specific issues and species of interest in estuarine ecosystems.
