Data | July 2020

This dataset compiles salt marsh monitoring from four New England NERRs from 2010 to 2018, as part of a catalyst project to sythesize and identify regional trends in salt marsh data in the reserve system.

Tool | July 2020

This how-to guide describes how to synthesize salt marsh monitoring data from the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.

Tool | July 2020

This how-to guide describes how to integrate plant cover data from two common methods of estimating marsh plant cover.

Journal Article | July 2020

This article, which appeared in Journal of Coastal Research in 2020, discusses the creation and field performance testing of a low-cost do-it-yourself (DIY) wave gauge.

Project Overview | June 2020

This project overview describes a 2017 science transfer project that developed a risk communication training for reserves to build risk communication capacity in four coastal communities.

Project Overview | May 2020

This project overview describes a 2017-18 science transfer project led by the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve that developed a regional workshop to build capacity for New England salt marsh resilience.

Tool | May 2020

These coastal hazard risk communication training process agendas can be used to as a model help facilitators develop trainings for coastal decision makers in other communities.

Tool | May 2020

This document provides guidance on the use of thin-layer sediment placement (TLP) as a tool for tidal marsh resilience in the face of sea-level rise.

Factsheet | May 2020

This summary brochure describes thin-layer placement (TLP) as a strategy for marsh resilience, and National Estuarine Research Reserve System research and recommendations for TLP use.

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.

Tool | April 2020

These coastal hazard risk communication workshop materials can be used to help facilitate trainings for coastal decision makers.

Management Brief | March 2020

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the March 17, 2020 panel webinar on Blue Carbon.

Webinar Brief | February 2020

Multimedia | February 2020

This webinar was originally presented on February 20, 2020 as part of the Restoration Webinar Series, hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's National Conservation Training Center. Presenters:  Kerstin Wasson, Beth Watson, and Kenny Raposa 

Webinar Brief | 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.

Data | November 2019
Webinar Brief | October 2019

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the October 2019 panel webinar Conceptualizing and Designing Collaborative Science Projects. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains panelist advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams.

Multimedia | October 2019

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.

Webinar Brief | September 2019

This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.

Tool | September 2019
