This article, published in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment in 2018, synthesizes oyster restoration projects since 1964 on the US Atlantic and Gulf coasts and suggests a restoration paradigm to prioritize investment in sites that maximize economic and ecological benefits and minimize construction costs.
The collaborative research project, Re-engineering Living Shorelines for High-Energy Coastal Environments, produced four datasets as part of their assessment of liviing shoreline installations at GTM Reserve in Florida.
This webiste provides a summary of and resources related to an October 2018 workshop at the GTM NERR in northeastern Florida.
This factsheet discusses the potential for gabion-breaks and other living shorelines to dissipate boat wakes and protect shorelines.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Brita Jessen and Dr. Matt McCarthy on July 18, 2019, summarizing the results of work using advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018.
This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to do a shoreline erosion assessment using common software.
These fact sheets provide information on wetland plants that may be used for shoreline restoration projects. Each plant fact sheet includes pictures, listed environmental tolerances, informational websites, and helpful tips for planting.
This Master's thesis examines sediment accumulation in two disparate coastal environments, including the Hudson River Reserve, as part of a larger research project about marsh formation and resilience, sediment movement, and the potential impact of dam removals.
Three related datasets were generated by the 2015 - 2019 collaborative research project Evaluating Living Shorelines to Inform Regulatory Decision-Making in South Carolina.
This factsheet describes a 2018 Catalyst project that is conducting a collaborative, scientific modeling investigation to improve oyster population sustainability and management on Florida's Atlantic coast.
This video was produced by a 2016 Science Transfer team to describe the concept of coastal blue carbon and explain why it is important in mitigating climate change.
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.
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.
This video describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project at the Guana Tolomato Matanzas Reserve where researchers installed a new living shoreline design to protect shorelines from boat wakes.
This geodatabase contains GIS layers that illustrate the distribution of existing wetlands and identify locations where restoration is likely to have the greatest positive environmental impact in Douglas County, WI.
This report summarizes the findings of a 2016 Science Transfer project that assessed the vulnerabilities of intertidal marsh sites in North and South Carolina.
