This story map explores how boat wakes affect coastal vulnerability in small estuary channels in Florida's Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway.
This web resources includes a compilation of lesson plans for grades K - 12 about coastal and estuarine ecology that are intended to complement programs that involve schools in local wetland restoration projects.
This 2021 article which appeared in Estuaries and Coasts provides a synthesis of native oyster restoration projects conducted from California, USA, to British Columbia, Canada.
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 project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that conducted a collaborative, scientific modeling investigation to improve oyster population sustainability and management on Florida's Atlantic coast.
This dataset comprises the data collected and produced as part of the 2016 research project Investigating the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Nuisance Mosquitoes, and Resilience of Coastal Salt Marsh Systems.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the February 2021 webinar Understanding the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Salt Marsh Resilience, and Nuisance Mosquitoes.
This journal article describes a new approach for statistically modeling boat wakes, which can help managers better understand how boat traffic impacts shoreline erosion and sediment transport.
This article, published in Estuaries and Coasts in 2021, estimates sediment impounded behind dams, compares this with new estimates of watershed sediment yield, and assesses the potential fate for dam sediment released into the estuary.
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 journal article summarizes results from an experimental living shoreline installation at GTM Reserve in northeast Florida and reveals who how well the installations dampened boat wakes.
This article published in Ecological Engineering summarizes findings from a project that installed a series of experimental living shorelines on a particularly high energy shoreline in GTM Reserve, Florida.
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 resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.
These five related carbon storage, greenhouse gas flux and environmental variable datasets were generated by the Bringing Wetlands to Market research team and used to develop a coastal wetland greenhouse gas model for New England.
This article, which appeared in Global Change Biology, discusses findings from a study that quantified total ecosystem carbon stocks of major tidal wetland types in the Pacific Northwest.
This project overview describes the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project that assessed how sediment released by dam removals would affect the Hudson River estuary and provide practical tools to regulators and practitioners.
