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.

Factsheet | May 2019
Multimedia | January 2019

This rack card was created by a 2016 Science Transfer team in Texas to provide the public with information about wetland ecosystem services and to introduce the concept of natural capital. 

Tool | January 2019

This document summarizes a December 2017 workshop hosted by Mission-Aransas Reserve that explored ways to generate a return on investment from wetland preservation and restoration projects in Texas. 

Multimedia | January 2019

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. 

Multimedia | January 2019

These slideshows, originally presented at a 2013 symposium hosted by Waquoit Bay Reserve, explore the different ways that salt marsh ecosystems are valued in the Northeast, with an emphasis on carbon and nitrogen cycling in salt marshes and economic valuation of ecosystem services.

Tool | January 2019

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 | January 2019

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

Multimedia | January 2019

This four-part video series gives an overview of the 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Bringing Wetlands to Market," discussing the project's field research, collaborative processes, and tools developed.

K-12 | January 2019

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. 

Report | December 2018

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.

Case Study | December 2018

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

Report | December 2018

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.

Tool | December 2018
Tool | December 2018

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 | December 2018

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. 

Website | November 2018

This website contains information about and products stemming from a 2018 salt marsh resilience workshop hosted by the New England reserves. 

Report | November 2018

This document describes and synthesizes discussions and notes from an April 2018 workshop hosted by the New England reserves on salt marsh resilience.

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.
