This article, published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment in 2018, synthesizes oyster restoration projects since 1964 on the US Atlantic and Gulf coasts and suggests a restoration paradigm to prioritize investment in sites that maximize economic and ecological benefits and minimize construction costs.
The collaborative research project, Re-engineering Living Shorelines for High-Energy Coastal Environments, produced four datasets as part of their assessment of liviing shoreline installations at GTM Reserve in Florida.
This webiste provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern Florida.
This factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Maggie Pletta of the Delaware Reserve on March 12, 2019, about the development of new, innovative visitor displays at three reserves, partnering with students at the University of Delaware to produce gesture-controlled, educational computer games.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is conducting a collaborative, scientific modeling investigation to improve oyster population sustainability and management on Florida's Atlantic coast.
This video describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve where researchers installed a new living shoreline design to protect shorelines from boat wakes.
This article, published in Sustainability in 2018, characterizes the boat wake climate in Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, assesses the area's bathymetry, and anticipates the effects of experimental living shorelines (natural breakwall and oyster restoration structures) on facilitating sediment deposition and slowing vegetation retreat.
This manual describes methods employed by a 2015 Collaborative Research project team to dissipate wave energy along the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
This report describes the findings of a 2011 Collaborative Research project that investigated the Matanzas Basin's vulnerability to sea level rise in Florida and identified potential adaptation strategies.
This game developed as part of the 2011 Collaborative Research project "Planning for Florida's Rising Tides" introduces participants to sea level rise adaptation strategies and provides an understanding of the participants' preferences for different strategies.
This pre-survey is part of a role-play game developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project on sea level rise adaptation in Florida. Each player is assigned a different stakeholder role and fills out this pre-survey before starting the game, which serves as a foundation for helping participants understand each others' perceptions of sea level rise adaptation strategies.
This factsheet describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that piloted an approach for stakeholder-driven planning that communities in Florida can use to prepare for sea level rise.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project in which the Southeast reserves are creating a region-wide, student-driven program for teachers that will further the understanding of restoring degraded or lost estuary habitats.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Science Transfer project that is supporting the development of new, innovate visitor displays at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas, Mission-Aransas, and Delaware National Estuarine Research Reserves.
