This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
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.
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.
This report presents the outcomes of a community stakeholder process in which participants engaged in an expert-facilitated and community-based approach to develop sea level rise adaptation options for a low-lying road in China Camp State Park, along San Francisco Bay, CA.
This video showcases an expo about classroom-tested science lesson plans created for the Virginia Scientists and Educators Alliance (VA SEA) by science graduate students. The VA SEA Project is currently supported by the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Virginia Sea Grant, and the VIMS Marine Advisory Program.
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.
The Fisheries Resilience Index is a self-assessment tool developed for Alaska fishery industry leaders and businesses.
This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to do a shoreline erosion assessment using common software.
This collection of resources provides instructions for a user-friendly, low-cost tool to estimate wave energy. It was produced by Eric Sparks' team as part of a collaborative research project to evaluate coastal restoration designs.
These factsheets provide information on wetland plants that may be used for shoreline restoration projects. Each plant factsheet includes pictures, listed environmental tolerances, informational websites, and helpful tips for planting.
James Arnott's dissertation contributes new, more extensive empirical data and analysis about the drivers and mechanisms of co-production with the aim to better understand how to accelerate the development of actionable sustainability science.
This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.
This Master's thesis examines sediment accumulation in two disparate coastal environments, including the Hudson River Reserve, as part of a larger research project about marsh formation and resilience, sediment movement, and the potential impact of dam removals.
Three related datasets were generated by the 2015 - 2019 collaborative research project Evaluating Living Shorelines to Inform Regulatory Decision-Making in South Carolina.
This thesis represents the first study to examine a full individual energy budget for the triploid Eastern oyster, Crassostrea virginica, with implications for shellfish aquaculture in the southeastern United States.
This report summarizes the results of a multi-year collaborative research project that evaluated a range of living shoreline projects in South Carolina. The results and guidance are intended to provide agency partners with the science-based information to create a regulatory pathway and develop project standards for living shorelines in South Carolina.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Dr. Brita Jessen and Dr. Matt McCarthy on July 18, 2019, summarizing the results of work using advanced satellite imagery to map the damage, death, and recovery of mangroves with a time series of images from 2010 to 2018.
