This project overview describes a 2017-18 science transfer project led by the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve that developed a regional workshop to build capacity for New England salt marsh resilience.
These facilitation guides and job aids, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, provide tools and activities for each step of the process to develop and track metrics of adaptation success.
These case studies, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, show how particular communities have defined and tracked their progress on climate adaptation goals.
This climate adaptation planning toolkit compiles lessons learned by five National Estuarine Research Reserves. It is designed to help communities set goals and identify specific indicators to evaluate progress toward a climate resilient future.
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 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 project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is enabling five reserves that have been participating in the Successful Adaptation Indicators and Metrics project to refine and share lessons and resources they've developed with the full Reserve System.
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 project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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 project overview describes the New England Climate Adaptation Project (NECAP), a 2012 Collaborative Research project that tested the use of role-play simulations to help community members manage climate risk in four New England communities.
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.
