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.

Website | January 2020

This webiste provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern 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 | November 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.

Journal Article | April 2019

This experimental study by Ada Bersoza Hernández and Christine Angelini informs the design of more durable wooden stabilization structures in coastal environments.

Management Brief | April 2019

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.

Data | March 2019

This dataset includes a suite of measures of ecological and physical functions of built sustainable shoreline structures at a set of demonstration sites along the Hudson River. 

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 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. 

Journal Article | January 2019

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.

Report | January 2019

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. 

Factsheet | January 2019

This factsheet 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.
