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.
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.
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.
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.
This step-by-step tutorial demonstrates how to do a shoreline erosion assessment using common software.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This video gives an overview of the 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Balancing Freshwater Needs in a Changing Environment."
This video discusses a 2011 Collaborative Research project that worked to develop science-based, stakeholder-informed recommendations to support freshwater inflows to maintain healthy estuaries on Texas' central coast.
This draft document describes the blue crab population model developed by a 2011 Collaborative Research project team at Mission-Aransas NERR.
This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project the developed science-based, stakeholder-informed recommendations for freshwater management along Texas' central coast.
This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project that developed a science-based framework for stakeholders to use in making decisions about water resource management in the Rookery Bay Estuary.
This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that assessed the ability and cost-effectiveness of marsh restoration designs to remove nitrogen pollution from stormwater runoff.
