Data | April 2021

This resource includes two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.

Journal Article | February 2021

This article, published in JGR Oceans in 2020, describes the use of a high-resolution model of water and sediment dynamics used in the Coos Bay estuary in Oregon to assess how 150 years of modification have altered sediment storage and transport.

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 | January 2021

This article, published in Estuaries and Coasts in 2021, estimates sediment impounded behind dams, compares this with new estimates of watershed sediment yield, and assesses the potential fate for dam sediment released into the estuary.

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.

Journal Article | November 2020

This article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.

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.

Multimedia | August 2020
Multimedia | August 2020

These American Sign Language video modules address Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise, teaching important concepts as well as new scientific vocabulary in sign language.

Tool | August 2020

These resources from a stakeholder visit to the Stariski Creek Meadows headwaters in July 2019 were developed as part of a project to improve groundwater management on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.

Multimedia | August 2020

This webinar from the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Seminar Series presents methods and outcomes from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.

Tool | July 2020

This geodatabase of groundwater on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, can be used as a foundation for decision-making to determine the locations of aquifers and predict groundwater discharge to streams.

Multimedia | July 2020

This webinar for decision makers presents findings from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.

Data | July 2020

These sediment and hydrodynamic data were collected as part of the 2016-2020 collaborative research project Improved Understanding of Sediment Dynamics for the Coos Estuary that produced a new bathymetric dataset for Coos Bay and a hydrodynamic model characterizing sediment distribution and circulation in the estuary.

Journal Article | June 2020

This article, submitted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters in 2020, uses turbidity observations to characterize estuary response following extreme discharge such as from storm-related flooding, which can be a proxy for sediment release from dam removals.

Journal Article | June 2020

This article, submitted for publication to Earth Surface Processes and Landforms in 2020, describes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) project related to tidal wetland growth in the Hudson River estuary as a result of human activities. It presents sediment accumulation rates in marshes along the Hudson and reveals the rapid growth of marshes associated with anthropogenic structures.
