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.

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.

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.

Website | December 2018

This website, created as part of a 2017 Collaborative Research project, describes a pilot program led by the University of New Hampshire and the NERRS to develop eDNA sample collection and analysis protocols. 

Report | November 2018

This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.

Journal Article | November 2018

This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise. 

Tool | November 2018

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

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.

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project where researchers are collaborating to pilot and refine DNA-based monitoring protocols that can be applied to specific issues and species of interest in estuarine ecosystems.
