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.

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.

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

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." 

Tool | December 2018

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.

Tool | December 2018

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.

Tool | December 2018

This spreadsheet was designed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners and designers properly size rainwater harvesting systems.

Tool | December 2018

This spreadsheet is a useful tool for maintaining various types of green infrastructure, including permeable pavement, green roofs, and rainwater harvesting systems.

Report | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

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 | 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.

Multimedia | October 2018

This webinar series, hosted by Restore America's Estuaries, includes webinars delivered by the project team from the "Establishing a Blue Carbon Network for the Gulf Coast" project about blue carbon needs and opportunities on the Gulf Coast.

Tool | October 2018

These talking points, developed by a 2015 Science Transfer project team, can help you communicate the importance of blue carbon and estuaries to different audiences.

Report | October 2018

This document is an assessment of blue carbon opportunities and needs on the Gulf Coast compiled by Coastal Training Program Coordinators at the Gulf of Mexico reserves. 

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project that developed a Gulf Coast blue carbon network as a platform for information sharing and coordinating efforts to develop blue carbon tools and projects in the region. 

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that is developing standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data.
