This paper, published in Remote Sensing in 2020, describes a new satellite-based habitat mapping technique that was tested at Rookery Bay NERR in southwest Florida.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project where Rookery Bay Reserve staff and University of South Florida researchers are partnered to update and create maps of mangrove habitat to measure changes over time.
This paper, published in International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, describes results of three different mangrove mapping methods to evaluate the impacts of Hurricane Irma, a Category 3 storm that affected southwest Florida in September of 2017. The approach was tested on a very high resolution WorldView-2 satellite image.
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.
This story map explains mangrove habitat change at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve from 2010-2018, illustrating mangrove damage and recovery from Hurricane Irma.
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.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Brita Jessen and Dr. Matt McCarthy on July 18, 2019, summarizing the results of work using advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018.
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 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 developed a science-based framework for stakeholders to use in making decisions about water resource management in the Rookery Bay Estuary.
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 webinar series, hosted by Restore America's Estuaries, includes webinars delivered by the project team from the "Establishing a Blue Carbon Network for the Gulf Coast" project about blue carbon needs and opportunities on the Gulf Coast.
These talking points, developed by a 2015 Science Transfer project team, can help you communicate the importance of blue carbon and estuaries to different audiences.
This document is an assessment of blue carbon opportunities and needs on the Gulf Coast compiled by Coastal Training Program Coordinators at the Gulf of Mexico reserves.
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.
