Webinar Brief | August 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the January 2020 webinar Engaging Communities in Role-Playing Simulations to Advance Climate Planning

Data | July 2020

These datasets and statistical analysis codes model surge barrier effects on the Hudson River estuary, developed as part of the 2018 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.

Project Overview | July 2020

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that created the web-based toolkit Resilience Metrics to share lessons learned on successful climate adaptation planning within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.

Multimedia | June 2020

This webinar, conducted June 30, 2020, presents research findings from the 2018-2020 catalyst project Assessing the Physical Effects of Storm Surge Barriers on the Harbor and Hudson River Estuary.

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.

Project Overview | March 2020

This project overview describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project that tested a new strategy to protect coastal habitats in high-energy environments in Florida.

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.

Report | January 2020

This report summarizes the January 2020 final workshop for a collaborative project to assess the potential effects of storm surge barriers on the Hudson River estuary.

Journal Article | January 2020

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.

Data | January 2020

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.

Factsheet | January 2020

This factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.

Report | December 2019

This report summarizes key findings from a 2019 workshop in New York that examined the potential ecological and physical impacts of constructing a surge barrier to protect the New York/New Jersey Harbor.

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.

Website | June 2019

This website houses the Rapid Assessment Protocol for assessing the physical and ecological performance of nature-based engineered shoreline structures. You can also access additional resources associated with the Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project, including demonstration site case studies along the Hudson River. 

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.
