Project Overview | May 2020

This project overview describes a 2017-18 science transfer project led by the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve that developed a regional workshop to build capacity for New England salt marsh resilience.

Tool | May 2020

These facilitation guides and job aids, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, provide tools and activities for each step of the process to develop and track metrics of adaptation success.

Case Study | May 2020

These case studies, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, show how particular communities have defined and tracked their progress on climate adaptation goals.

Website | April 2020

This climate adaptation planning toolkit compiles lessons learned by five National Estuarine Research Reserves. It is designed to help communities set goals and identify specific indicators to evaluate progress toward a climate resilient future.

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.

Management Brief | September 2019

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

Project Overview | May 2019

This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level rise.

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.

Webinar Brief | February 2019

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.

Project Overview | January 2019

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is enabling five reserves that have been participating in the Successful Adaptation Indicators and Metrics project to refine and share lessons and resources they've developed with the full Reserve System.

Report | December 2018

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.

Case Study | December 2018

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

Report | December 2018

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.

Tool | December 2018
Journal Article | December 2018

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.

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. 

Report | December 2018

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.
