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.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the June 2020 webinar Credit for Going Green: Using an Expert Panel Process to Quantify the Benefits of Buffers.
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.
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.
This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) collaborative research project.
This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) collaborative research project related to sediment trapped behind dams and sediment supply in the Hudson River estuary
This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project related to tidal wetlands in the Hudson River estuary.
This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project where Kachemak Bay Reserve staff and local partners are developing a conceptual model and geospatial layer that can be used to predict specific locations where groundwater discharge and recharge occur.
This collection of videos uses a hydrodynamic model to show salinity changes in the Coos estuary in different geographies and seasons.
This article uses a hydrodynamic model of the Coos estuary in southwestern Orgeon to examine seasonal variability of salinity dynamics and estuarine exchange flow.
This article discusses changes to the Coos estuary over the past 150 years, and their present and future impacts.
This website contains data and files to run hydrodynamic modeling simulations for Coos estuary in southwestern Oregon.
This story map about salmon, groundwater, and people in the Kenai Lowlands, Alaska can help local stakeholders better understand groundwater dynamics.
These scientific illustrations show groundwater flows, seeps, and springs. They were created as part of a 2017 Collaborative Research project that developed a conceptional model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the March 2020 webinar Estimating Long-term Phosphorus Retention Capacity of Riverine and Coastal Wetlands. In addition to taking audience questions, the team offered some ideas about how their work informed an ambitious water quality initiative in Ohio.
This protocol is intended to enable wetland managers, conservationists, and other practitioners to monitor and estimate a wetland’s long-term Total Phosphorus (TP) retention capacity threshold.
This infographic illustrates the role wetlands can play in removing total phosphorus from the water and ultimately help improve water quality and reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie. The infographic describes how the researchers estimated long-term phosphorus retention capacity for different types of wetlands in Ohio and provides suggestions as to how different audiences might be able to contribute to this effort.
In collaboration with several local partners, Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve conducted a study aimed at understanding different wetlands' long-term capacity for removing nutrients. Together, they produced this story map that demonstrates the importance of wetland services, explains different types of wetlands and management priorities, and summarizes how the team estimated the long-term phosphorus retention capacities of a variety of wetland types based on samples collected from sites in Ohio, including the Lake Erie watershed.
This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
These video modules introduce the conceputs and vocabulary of estuary ecology using American Sign Language. Five videos are available for the following topics: Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise.
