Management Brief | September 2019

This draft management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, was distributed to attendees ahead of the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

Report | June 2019

This briefing document presents outcomes and findings from a science transfer project that developed and led role playing simulation exercises to help community leaders and stakeholders explore options for addressing flooding and other climate-related risks in South Carolina.

Factsheet | May 2019
Report | January 2019

This report summarizes the findings of a 2016 Science Transfer project that assessed the vulnerabilities of intertidal marsh sites in North and South Carolina. 

Tool | December 2018

These resources are from workshops, focus groups, and surveys that a team from North Inlet-Winyah Bay and ACE Basin reserves used to scope their 2012 Collaborative Research project, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina." 

Tool | December 2018

These resources contain information about stakeholder workshops hosted by the 2012 Collaborative Research project team, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina." These resources include meeting agendas, presentations, meeting notes, and other materials.

Tool | December 2018

This spreadsheet was developed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners in coastal South Carolina calculate rules for stormwater treatment and runoff reductions from their sites based on statewide rules and regulations.

Tool | December 2018

This spreadsheet was designed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners and designers properly size rainwater harvesting systems.

Tool | December 2018

This spreadsheet is a useful tool for maintaining various types of green infrastructure, including permeable pavement, green roofs, and rainwater harvesting systems.

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 guide removes barriers to low impact development implementation in South Carolina by providing engineering tools, planning guidance, and case study examples that are relevant to the South Carolina coastal zone.

Factsheet | December 2018

This factsheet describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a protocol to accurately measure suspended sediment concentrations in tidal marshes, enhancing understanding of marsh accretion and informing marsh conservation and restoration.

Factsheet | December 2018

This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.

Factsheet | December 2018

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

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. 

Factsheet | October 2018

This factsheet describes a 2016 Science Transfer project where staff members from the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve are being trained in the application of the CCVATCH tool to assess the vulnerabilities of local coastal habitats to climate change.

Factsheet | October 2018

This factsheet describes a 2018 Science Transfer project that is transferring a novel approach to climate adaptation planning developed in New England to a coastal county in South Carolina. 

Tool | October 2018

This tool contains all the materials needed to organize role playing simulations that can be used to help communities explore options for addressing coastal flooding in the southeast.
