Project Overview | June 2020

This project overview describes a 2017 science transfer project that developed a risk communication training for reserves to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities.

Tool | May 2020

These coastal hazard risk communication training process agendas can be used to as a model help facilitators develop trainings for coastal decision makers in other communities.

Tool | April 2020

These coastal hazard risk communication workshop materials can be used to help facilitate trainings for coastal decision makers.

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 | February 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the February 2020 webinar Resilience Dialogues: Strategies for Conflict Management in Collaborative Science. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains an introduction to some key principles of collaboration, lessons learned about conflict management in collaborative science, and example case studies from real projects.

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.

Webinar Brief | September 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.

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.

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.

Website | January 2019

This website contains information and resources from a 2012 Collaborative Research project that sought to reduce the vulnerabilities of Maryland's Deal Island Peninsula area to the impacts of climate change by creating partnerships between communities, decision-makers, and scientists. 

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 enhance resilience on Maryland's Deal Island by building a stakeholder network and integrating research to understand how different management practices will impact marsh and community resilience.

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.
