K-12 | February 2021

This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.

K-12 | February 2021

This curriculum resource book, developed by Duke University Maine Lab, describes a series of water quality activities for high school classes, including background material and worksheet handouts.

Multimedia | February 2021
Thesis or Dissertation | February 2021

This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Allison Kline, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.

Journal Article | December 2020

This article, which appeared in Science of The Total Environment, describes a study assessing the extent and causes of potential fecal contamination in the frequently-visited Rachel Carson Reserve, NC.

Data | November 2020

These datasets are from an intensive field sampling in and adjacent to aquaculture operations in North Carolina, concentrating on wild shellfish resources and the physical and chemical environment, to assess ecosystem services and potential impacts of the oyster farms.

Webinar Summary | October 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.

Multimedia | October 2020

This slide deck summarizes findings from a collaborative research that looked at the ecological impacts and ecosystem service benefits of oyster farms in North Carolina.

K-12 | May 2019

This document contains three lesson plans developed as part of a 2016 Collaborative Research project. The lesson plans help students explore the causes and impacts of stormwater discharges.

Thesis or Dissertation | April 2019

This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Kinsey Fischer, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.

Multimedia | January 2019

This story map describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project spearheaded by North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve that investigated how swashes collect, transform, and export the nutrients and organic matter that fuel hypoxia along coastal South Carolina.

Tool | December 2018

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 | December 2018

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 | December 2018

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 | December 2018

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

Tool | December 2018

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

Report | December 2018

This guide, developed as part of a 2013 Collaborative Research project, includes simple projects that homeowners can undertake to reduce pollution from their yards. 

Report | December 2018

This guide removes barriers to low impact development implementation in South Carolina by providing engineering tools, planning guidance, and case study examples that are relevant to the South Carolina coastal zone.

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.
