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 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
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 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 a 2013 Collaborative Research project that refined and piloted the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment Tool for Coastal Habitats ("CCVATCH").
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.
