Journal Article

This article describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project in Exeter, NH that studied adaptive governance and climate change adaptation planning by evaluating stakeholder involvement in a local institutional setting.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

Factsheet

This factsheets describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves. 

Journal Article

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. 

Case Study

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).

Tool

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.

Factsheet
Report

This interim report summarizes a community meeting hosted by a 2013 Collaborative Research project team in Exeter, New Hampshire about how to prepare the town for a changing climate.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a model climate adaptation plan for Exeter, New Hampshire to help decision-makers address climate change impacts.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project where researchers are collaborating to pilot and refine DNA-based monitoring protocols that can be applied to specific issues and species of interest in estuarine ecosystems. 

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer West of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on October 23, 2018 about her 2017 Science Transfer project that hosted a workshop to discuss the growing body of literature on salt marshes and sea level rise.

Website

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. 

Tool

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.

Tool

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

Case Study

These case studies summarize findings from a 2012 Collaborative Research project studying climate change adaptation and risks in four New England communities. 

Report

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.

Tool
Report

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.

Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given byAlison Watts of the University of New Hampshire and Bree Yednock of the South Slough Reserve on February 14, 2019, featuring results from a pilot eDNA monitoring program being developed and tested at several National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) sites in New England and Oregon.

Report

This report provides an overview of the state of knowledge regarding the impact of climate change on salt marsh habitat in the Northeast.
