Journal Article | July 2020

This article, which appeared in Journal of Coastal Research in 2020, discusses the creation and field performance testing of a low-cost do-it-yourself (DIY) wave gauge.

Journal Article | May 2020

This paper, published in Remote Sensing in 2020, describes a new satellite-based habitat mapping technique that was tested at Rookery Bay NERR in southwest Florida. 

Project Overview | May 2020

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project where Rookery Bay Reserve staff and University of South Florida researchers are partnered to update and create maps of mangrove habitat to measure changes over time. 

Management Brief | March 2020

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 story map explains mangrove habitat change at the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve from 2010-2018, illustrating mangrove damage and recovery from Hurricane Irma.

Data | November 2019
Tool | September 2019

This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to do a shoreline erosion assessment using common software.

Factsheet | September 2019

These factsheets provide information on wetland plants that may be used for shoreline restoration projects. Each plant factsheet includes pictures, listed environmental tolerances, informational websites, and helpful tips for planting.

Website | January 2019

This website was developed by a 2017 Science Transfer project team to provide stakeholders along the Mississippi-Alabama coast with up-to-date data on how human wastewater affects water quality and tangible recommendations for improving it. 

Tool | January 2019

This "edutainment" packet, developed by a 2016 Science Transfer team, is an outreach tool that describes threats to water quality along the Mississippi-Alabama coastline and helps end users understand how they can they can take actionable steps to improve local water quality.

Multimedia | January 2019

This video was produced by a 2016 Science Transfer team to describe the concept of coastal blue carbon and explain why it is important in mitigating climate change. 

Multimedia | January 2019

This rack card was created by a 2016 Science Transfer team in Texas to provide the public with information about wetland ecosystem services and to introduce the concept of natural capital.
