These public outreach materials discuss ecosystem services and the benefits to people from coastal habitats such as oyster reef and mangrove.
These middle school lessons discuss ecosystem services and the benefits to people from coastal habitats such as oyster reef and mangrove.
This case study discusses an example of an Ecosystem Services Conceptual Model for mangrove habitat restoration at Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Florida.
This case study discusses an example of an Ecosystem Services Conceptual Model for oyster reef restoration at National Estuarine Research Reserve sites in North Carolina.
This online ecosystem services toolkit is designed to help coastal resource managers incorporate ecosystem services into decision-making processes and habitat restoration projects.
These generalized Ecosystem Services Conceptual Models and metrics for mangrove and oyster reef habitat restoration are designed to help coastal managers incorporate ecosystem services into their coastal decision-making processes.
This workshop facilitation guide is designed to help coastal resource managers and practitioners incorporate ecosystem services into their coastal decision-making processes.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project where Rookery Bay Reserve staff and University of South Florida researchers are partnered to update and create maps of mangrove habitat to measure changes over time.
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.
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.
These facilitation guides and job aids, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, provide tools and activities for each step of the process to develop and track metrics of adaptation success.
These case studies, part of a Resilience Metrics toolkit, show how particular communities have defined and tracked their progress on climate adaptation goals.
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.
This collection of K-12 lesson plans, compiled by the Native Olympia Oyster Collaborative, features science, math, engineering, writing, art, and multidisciplinary lessons that invite students to explore various aspects of West coast native oysters.
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.
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.
These coastal hazard risk communication workshop materials can be used to help facilitate trainings for coastal decision makers.
This climate adaptation planning toolkit compiles lessons learned by five National Estuarine Research Reserves. It is designed to help communities set goals and identify specific indicators to evaluate progress toward a climate resilient future.
This paper, published in International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation, describes results of three different mangrove mapping methods to evaluate the impacts of Hurricane Irma, a Category 3 storm that affected southwest Florida in September of 2017. The approach was tested on a very high resolution WorldView-2 satellite image.
A science transfer project developed a series of resources to help others use video games in their visitor centers, including custom game images, user guides and execuble files.
