Management Brief | March 2020

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.

Webinar Brief | February 2020

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.

Webinar Brief | December 2019

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.

Webinar Brief | September 2019

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.

Webinar Brief | March 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.

Multimedia | January 2019

This video was produced by a 2016 Science Transfer team to describe the concept of coastal blue carbon and explain why it is important in mitigating climate change. 

Multimedia | January 2019

This rack card was created by a 2016 Science Transfer team in Texas to provide the public with information about wetland ecosystem services and to introduce the concept of natural capital. 

Tool | January 2019

This document summarizes a December 2017 workshop hosted by Mission-Aransas Reserve that explored ways to generate a return on investment from wetland preservation and restoration projects in Texas. 

Tool | December 2018

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.

Report | December 2018

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. 

Tool | December 2018

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.

Tool | December 2018

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. 

Multimedia | December 2018

This video gives an overview of the 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Balancing Freshwater Needs in a Changing Environment."

Multimedia | December 2018

This video discusses a 2011 Collaborative Research project that worked to develop science-based, stakeholder-informed recommendations to support freshwater inflows to maintain healthy estuaries on Texas' central coast.

Tool | December 2018

This draft document describes the blue crab population model developed by a 2011 Collaborative Research project team at Mission-Aransas NERR.

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project the developed science-based, stakeholder-informed recommendations for freshwater management along Texas' central coast.

Project Overview | December 2018

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

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | November 2018

This project overview describes a 2016 Science Transfer project that provided outreach to communicate blue carbon concepts to end users on the Gulf Coast.

Project Overview | October 2018

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.
