This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that designed and applied predictive models to better understand the buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh on New York's Hudson River.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the March 2021 webinar Understanding the Role Coastal Marshes Play in Protecting Communities from Storm Surge and Flooding.
This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that is piloting and refining DNA-based monitoring protocols that can be applied to specific issues and species of interest in estuarine ecosystems.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that assessed the ecosystem services of shellfish farming in the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that developed standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data.
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.
This factsheet describes the process of environmental DNA (eDNA) water sampling in estuarine systems, and provides specific methdology recommendations to facilitate detection of invasive species.
This data resource includes eDNA sequences, fish species summary tables, and DNA extractions from Wells, Great Bay, Hudson, Apalachicola, South Slough, and He’eia National Estuarine Research Reserves.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the October 2020 webinar Decision Support for Siting of Shellfish Aquaculture.
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.
This factsheet summarizes the results of a project that studied small-scale changes around oyster farms and assessed larger-scale ecosystem-level alterations to provide a local assessment of ecosystem services of shellfish aquaculture.
This tool provides a framework for discussing a range of criteria when evaluating locations for shellfish aquaculture.
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.
This MS Thesis summarizes research on the impacts of shellfish aquaculture on native populations of eastern oysters in North Carolina
This MS thesis summarizes field studies comparing the biological communities around oyster farms with natural or restored natural oyster reefs in North Carolina.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
These five related carbon storage, greenhouse gas flux and environmental variable datasets were generated by the Bringing Wetlands to Market research team and used to develop a coastal wetland greenhouse gas model for New England.
This article, which appeared in Global Change Biology, discusses findings from a study that quantified total ecosystem carbon stocks of major tidal wetland types in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
