This draft document describes the blue crab population model developed by a 2011 Collaborative Research project team at Mission-Aransas NERR.

Tool

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.

Tool

This document, developed by the Tijuana River and Kachemak Bay Reserves staff, contains instructions for developing scenario narratives and a scenario narrative template.

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 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

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."

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.

Tool

This online toolbox contains adaptation planning tools developed during a 2015 Science Transfer project on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.

Tool

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

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

Tool

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.

Tool

This game developed as part of the 2011 Collaborative Research project "Planning for Florida's Rising Tides" introduces participants to sea level rise adaptation strategies and provides an understanding of the participants' preferences for different strategies.

Tool

This pre-survey is part of a role-play game developed as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project on sea level rise adaptation in Florida. Each player is assigned a different stakeholder role and fills out this pre-survey before starting the game, which serves as a foundation for helping participants understand each others' perceptions of sea level rise adaptation strategies. 

Tool

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

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

Tool

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.

Tool

This index is a self-assessment tool that the Wells Reserve adapted from the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium for use in Maine's Beaches region. 

Tool

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.
