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 document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.
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 2016 Science Transfer project where staff members from the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve are being trained in the application of the CCVATCH tool to assess the vulnerabilities of local coastal habitats to climate change.
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 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.
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.
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 a 2012 Collaborative Research project that worked to address barriers preventing communities in South Carolina from embracing low-impact development strategies.
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.
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.
This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project that is transferring a novel approach to climate adaptation planning developed in New England to a coastal county in South Carolina.
