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.
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 factsheet 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 factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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.
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 2017 Science Transfer project where five reserves are are applying trainings and materials previously developed by the Jacques Cousteau Reserve and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that is developing educational modules in American Sign Language, providing professional experiences for teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, and providing field experiences for children who are deaf or hard of hearing.
These process agendas provide a better understanding of how the CCVATCH tool may be applied over the course of one or multiple days by an assessment team.
This collection of case studies provide examples of vulnerability assessments conducted in Rhode Island using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).
This report summarizes the findings of a vulnerability assessment of Rhode Island salt marshes using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).
This document identifies data gaps and research needs related to salt marsh vulnerability in the northeastern United States.
