This webinar, conducted June 30, 2020, presents research findings from the 2018-2020 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.
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.
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.
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.
These coastal hazard risk communication workshop materials can be used to help facilitate trainings for coastal decision makers.
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 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.
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.
This report summarizes key findings from a 2019 workshop in New York that examined the potential ecological and physical impacts of constructing a surge barrier to protect the New York/New Jersey Harbor.
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 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 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.
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.
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.
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.
