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.
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.
This data resource includes eDNA sequences, fish species summary tables, and DNA extractions from Wells, Great Bay, Hudson, Apalachicola, South Slough, and Heʻeia National Estuarine Research Reserves.
This collection of reports summarizes Surface Elevation Table (SET) data at fiften reserves. A technical report analyzing of surface elevation change and a summary for oureach purposes is provided for each reserve.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the December 2019 webinar Leveraging NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program Data for Wetland Research and Management. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains example work from project teams working with System-wide Monitoring Program data, and advice and best practices for both new and existing collaborative science project teams interested in working with monitoring data.
This project overview describes a project led by Elkorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve to communicate the results of a recent national synthesis of NERR Sentinel Site data on marsh resilience to sea level rise.
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 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.
This project overview describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project that studied the legacy effects of land use change on water quality in Grand Bay, Mississippi.
This project overview describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that developed products and tools that help end users on the Mississippi-Alabama coast learn how to minimize their impact on water quality.
This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.
This paper, published in Biological Conservation, describes an innovative approach developed by the NERRS to evaluate the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea levels rise.
This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that is developing tools and materials to educate the public and decision-makers about the ways that man-made land use changes affect water quality, fisheries, and human health in the region around Grand Bay, Mississippi.
