Project Overview | January 2021

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. 

Project Overview | January 2021

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. 

Factsheet | November 2020

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.

Data | November 2020

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.

Report | April 2020

This collection of reports summarizes Surface Elevation Table (SET) data at fiften reserves. A technical report analyzing of surface elevation change and a summary for oureach purposes is provided for each reserve.

Webinar Summary | December 2019

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the December 2019 webinar Leveraging NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program Data for Wetland Research and Management. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains example work from project teams working with System-wide Monitoring Program data, and advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams interested in working with monitoring data.

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the Northeast reserves developed and offered a series of teacher workshops focused on the story of climate change impacts on coastal habitats. 

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by the University of New Hampshire that is synthesizing salt marsh vegetation and elevation data to improve coastal wetland management in New England. 

K-12 | December 2016

This lesson plan helps teachers and students understand the concept of blue carbon and the impacts of sea level rise on salt marshes.
