Factsheet | October 2021

This factsheet, written as a resource for a three-year Collaborative Research project, describes measures and proposed management plans for marsh resilience to create a long-term monitoring programs and national-level synthesis efforts. 

Project Overview | January 2021

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. 

Webinar Summary | July 2020

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the July 2020 webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship

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.

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.

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 Summary | December 2019

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the December 2019 webinar Leveraging NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program Data for Wetland Research and Management.

Multimedia | September 2019

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.

Webinar Summary | September 2019

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the September 2019 webinar Accelerating Collective Learning and Action for Enhanced Climate Resilience.

Management Brief | September 2019

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.

Project Overview | May 2019

This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level rise.

Tool | December 2018

This document provides guidance to those wishing to use the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH") - a decision support tool which guides users through a series of questions to calculate numerical climate vulnerability scores for ecological habitats.

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").

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. 

Project Overview | November 2018

This project overview describes a 2016 Science Transfer project that extended the reach of a watershed education and training project, Climate Education for a Changing Bay, in Virginia.

Data | October 2018

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