This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the May 2021 webinar Can Oyster Aquaculture Help Restore Coastal Water Quality?
This 2021 article which appeared in Ecology and Society describes a research project exploring how alders, peatlands, and groundwater flows were incorporated into a spatial tool that was used in case studies with user groups and in outreach efforts. The paper includes evidence that these efforts to engage with stakeholders are resulting in attitudinal shifts as well as on-the-ground changes in peoples’ decision-making.
This resource includes links to five datasets generated by a collaborative research project that measured nitrogen removal from oyster aquaculture using complement biogeochemistry and genetic methods.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the April 2021 webinar Promoting Resilient Groundwater and Holistic Watershed Management in Alaska’s Kenai Lowlands.
This open access article describes an assessment of the storm buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh, New York.
This poster, created by a Hollings Scholar who worked with Kachemak Bay NERR on a 2017 collaborative research project, describes the project and results.
This video was created by two high school students from the Alaska Native village of Tyonek, documenting their communities groundwater uses, and represents one output from engaging with students from a 2017 collaborative research project.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that designed and applied predictive models to better understand the buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh on New York's Hudson River.
This article, published in Frontiers in Marine Science in 2021, describes work done as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project conducted at Waquoit Bay Reserve in Massachusetts. The article explores the impacts of oyster aquaculture on nitrogen removal by examining bacterial processes in sediments underlying three of the most common aquaculture methods that vary in the proximity of oysters to the sediments.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the March 2021 webinar Understanding the Role Coastal Marshes Play in Protecting Communities from Storm Surge and Flooding.
This outreach tool summarizes the key takeways for a project that assessed the value of a coastal marsh in protecting coastal communities from storm surge and flooding amid a changing climate.
This article, published in Scientific Reports in 2021, describes work done as part of a 2016-2020 collaborative research project conducted at Hudson River Reserve in New York. The article describes a regression model that can be used for wetland restoration planning to help reduce storm-related structural damage.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that assessed the ecosystem services of shellfish farming in the North Carolina National Estuarine Research Reserve.
These datasets are from an intensive field sampling in and adjacent to aquaculture operations in North Carolina, concentrating on wild shellfish resources and the physical and chemical environment, to assess ecosystem services and potential impacts of the oyster farms.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the October 2020 webinar Decision Support for Siting of Shellfish Aquaculture.
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 factsheet summarizes the results of a project that studied small-scale changes around oyster farms and assessed larger-scale ecosystem-level alterations to provide a local assessment of ecosystem services of shellfish aquaculture.
This tool provides a framework for discussing a range of criteria when evaluating locations for shellfish aquaculture.
This slide deck summarizes findings from a collaborative research that looked at the ecological impacts and ecosystem service benefits of oyster farms in North Carolina.
This MS Thesis summarizes research on the impacts of shellfish aquaculture on native populations of eastern oysters in North Carolina
