Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer Plunket of the North Inlet-Winyah Nay Reserve and Robin Weber of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on July 17, 2018 summarizing results from their assessments using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

Factsheet

This factsheets describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves. 

Journal Article

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. 

Case Study

This collection of case studies provide examples of vulnerability assessments conducted in Rhode Island using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Tool

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.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project where five reserves are are applying trainings and materials previously developed by the Jacques Cousteau Reserve and NOAA's Office for Coastal Management to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities. 

Factsheet
Webinar Brief

These slides summarize a webinar given by Jennifer West of the Narragansett Bay Reserve on October 23, 2018 about her 2017 Science Transfer project that hosted a workshop to discuss the growing body of literature on salt marshes and sea level rise.

Tool

These process agendas provide a better understanding of how the CCVATCH tool may be applied over the course of one or multiple days by an assessment team.

Tool

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

Case Study

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

Report

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.

Tool
Report

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.

Report

This report provides an overview of the state of knowledge regarding the impact of climate change on salt marsh habitat in the Northeast.

Report

This document identifies data gaps and research needs related to salt marsh vulnerability in the northeastern United States.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.

Report

This report summarizes the findings of a vulnerability assessment of Rhode Island salt marshes using the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats (CCVATCH).

Report

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