This project overview describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project that tested a new strategy to protect coastal habitats in high-energy environments in Florida.
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 factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.
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 living shorelines, 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 living shorelines practitioners and researchers.
This experimental study by Ada Bersoza Hernández and Christine Angelini informs the design of more durable wooden stabilization structures in coastal environments.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the Living Shorelines panel webinar on April 11, 2019.
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 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 project overview 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 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.
This project overview 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.
This webpage provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern Florida, including all presentation slides.
