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.
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.
This project overview describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project where Waquoit Bay Reserve is working with end users to test the applicability of a previously-developed model to accurately predict greenhouse gas fluxes across a wide range of coastal wetlands.
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.
This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that examined the relationship between salt marshes, climate change, and nitrogen pollution and developed tools to leverage the “blue carbon” stored in wetlands to achieve broader management goals.
This project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that developed a protocol to accurately measure suspended sediment concentrations in tidal marshes, enhancing understanding of marsh accretion and informing marsh conservation and restoration.
This project overview describes the New England Climate Adaptation Project (NECAP), a 2012 Collaborative Research project that tested the use of role-play simulations to help community members manage climate risk in four New England communities.
This project overview describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that developed educational video modules in American Sign Language, provided professional experiences for teachers of the deaf and hard of hearing, and created field experiences for their students.
This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.
This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project where the four Northeast reserves used CCVATCH to conduct vulnerability assessments of coastal habitats in their reserves.
This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project that developed a Gulf Coast blue carbon network as a platform for information sharing and coordinating efforts to develop blue carbon tools and projects in the region.
This project overview describes a 2017-2020 Collaborative Research project that involved scientists and end users in Cape Cod, Massachusetts working together to develop decision-support tools for hydrological management strategies that promote sustainability and delivery of valuable ecosystem services under future sea level rise scenarios.
