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 | May 2020

This national synthesis report analyzes SET data from 15 National Estuarine Research Reserves across the continental United States, summarizing wetland water level trends over a 19-year period.

Tool | May 2020

A 2018 catalyst project developed tools for working with SET data including a series of computer codes -  R scripts  - for processing, quality checking, analyzing and visualizing these complex datasets. The statistical codes re available through GitHub and are explained in a Guide to the SETr Workflow.

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.

Multimedia | February 2020

In these two February 2020 webinars, project lead Kim Cressman and her team provide an introduction to newly developed tools for analyzing and communicating about Surface Elevation Table (SET) data.

Website | January 2019

This website was developed by a 2017 Science Transfer project team to provide stakeholders along the Mississippi-Alabama coast with up-to-date data on how human wastewater affects water quality and tangible recommendations for improving it. 

Tool | January 2019

This "edutainment" packet, developed by a 2016 Science Transfer team, is an outreach tool that describes threats to water quality along the Mississippi-Alabama coastline and helps end users understand how they can they can take actionable steps to improve local water quality.

Report | November 2018

This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.

Journal Article | November 2018

This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise. 

Tool | November 2018

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

Data | October 2018

This code (R and MATLAB) can be used to analyze NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program time series 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. 

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.
