These coastal hazard risk communication training process agendas can be used to as a model help facilitators develop trainings for coastal decision makers in other communities.
These coastal hazard risk communication workshop materials can be used to help facilitate trainings for coastal decision makers.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the March 17, 2020 panel webinar on Blue Carbon.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the December 2019 webinar Leveraging NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program Data for Wetland Research and Management. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains example work from project teams working with System-wide Monitoring Program data, and advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams interested in working with monitoring data.
This video showcases an expo about classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance (VA SEA) by science graduate students. The VA SEA Project is currently supported by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Virginia Sea Grant, and the VIMS Marine Advisory Program.
This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level rise.
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.
This project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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 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 tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.
This project overview describes a 2016 Science Transfer project that extended the reach of a watershed education and training project, Climate Education for a Changing Bay, in Virginia.
This project overview describes a 2017 science transfer project that developed a risk communication training for reserves to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities.
These lesson plans are classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance by graduate students.
This webinar series, hosted by Restore America's Estuaries, includes webinars delivered by the project team from the "Establishing a Blue Carbon Network for the Gulf Coast" project about blue carbon needs and opportunities on the Gulf Coast.
These talking points, developed by a 2015 Science Transfer project team, can help you communicate the importance of blue carbon and estuaries to different audiences.
This document is an assessment of blue carbon opportunities and needs on the Gulf Coast compiled by Coastal Training Program Coordinators at the Gulf of Mexico reserves.
This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves.
