This 2021 article which appeared in Ecological Engineering explores the potential for large-scale breakwaters to preserve fringing marsh vegetation in high wave energy environments.
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 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 guide is designed to be a resource for current and potential oyster growers that want to understand and maximize the water quality benefits of their aquaculture operations.
This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that explores how oyster aquaculture practices may be used to remediate water quality in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
This resource includes two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.
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 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 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 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 data resource includes marsh vegetation, water level data and modeling outputs from a project that examined how Piermont Marsh in New York buffers the impacts of storms.
This article, published in JGR Oceans in 2020, describes the use of a high-resolution model of water and sediment dynamics used in the Coos Bay estuary in Oregon to assess how 150 years of modification have altered sediment storage and transport.
This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.
This curriculum resource book, developed by Duke University Maine Lab, describes a series of water quality activities for high school classes, including background material and worksheet handouts.
