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. 

K-12

This high school STEM curriculum module related to the 2011 "Bringing Wetlands to Market in Massachusetts" project examines the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, nitrogen pollution, and the economic value of salt marshes as carbon sinks. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that examined the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, and nitrogen pollution and developed tools to leverage the “blue carbon” stored in wetlands to achieve broader management goals. 

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project where Waquoit Bay Reserve is working with end users to test the applicability of a previously-developed model to accurately predict greenhouse gas fluxes across a wide range of coastal wetlands.

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).

Multimedia

These presentations were delivered at the Capitalizing on Coastal Blue Carbon conference in 2015, hosted by the Waquoit Bay Reserve to discuss the outcomes of their 2011 Collaborative Research project and implications for wetland conservation in New England and beyond. 

Tool

This document helps guide coastal and land managers in understanding the ways by which coastal blue carbon can help achieve coastal management goals. 

Tool

This document outlines procedures to use the Methodology for Tidal Wetland and Seagrass Restoration, approved by the Verified Carbon Standard, to estimate net greenhouse gas emission reductions and removals resulting from restoration of coastal wetlands. 

Tool

This model is a power-law based model developed by using data for four different wetlands in Waquoit Bay and Great Pond estuaries, MA. It was developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Bringing Wetlands to Market in Massachusetts."

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.

Factsheet

This factsheet describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project at Waquoit Bay Reserve where scientists and end users are collaborating to develop decision-support tools for marsh hydrological management strategies.

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.

Factsheet

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. 

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.
