Webinar Summary | May 2021

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?

Journal Article | May 2021

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.

Tool | May 2021

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.

Project Overview | April 2021

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. 

Multimedia | April 2021
Data | April 2021

This resource includes two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.

Data | April 2021

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.

Webinar Summary | April 2021

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.

Multimedia | March 2021

This poster, created by a Hollings Scholar who worked with Kachemak Bay NERR on a 2017 collaborative research project, describes the project and results.

Multimedia | March 2021

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.

Journal Article | March 2021

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.

Journal Article | February 2021

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.

K-12 | February 2021

This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.

K-12 | February 2021

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.

Multimedia | February 2021
Thesis or Dissertation | February 2021

This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Allison Kline, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.

Project Overview | January 2021

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. 

Project Overview | January 2021

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. 

Journal Article | January 2021

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.

Journal Article | December 2020

This article, which appeared in Science of The Total Environment, describes a study assessing the extent and causes of potential fecal contamination in the frequently-visited Rachel Carson Reserve, NC.
