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.
This factsheet describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that established the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds, a group of local stakeholders that represents diverse interests in Oregon's Coos Bay.
The Communities, Lands & Waterways Data Source is an encyclopedic compilation of all available data describing the socioeconomic and environmental conditions in the Coos Bay area.
This community vision, developed as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project, describes desired future conditions stakeholders and residents hope to see for the South Slough and Coastal Frontal sub-basins of the Coos Watershed.
This factsheet 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.
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.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is demonstrating the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project where researchers are working to fill information gaps that are critical to addressing management needs for Oregon's Coos Bay Estuary.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that is developing standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data.
This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.
These slides summarize a webinar given byAlison Watts of the University of New Hampshire and Bree Yednock of the South Slough Reserve on February 14, 2019, featuring results from a pilot eDNA monitoring program being developed and tested at several National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) sites in New England and Oregon.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.
This document is a summarization of data that describe the environmental and socioeconomic conditions in Coos Bay's South Slough and Coastal Frontal watersheds in Oregon.
This factsheet describes a 2016 Integrated Assessment project that is looking at how to create a modernized land use plan for Oregon's Coos Bay Estuary that balances responsible economic development, social interests, and protection of natural resources.
