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. 

Data | November 2020

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.

Report | April 2020

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.

Webinar Summary | December 2019

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.

Project Overview | May 2019

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.

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 | December 2018

This video gives an overview of the 2011 Collaborative Research project, "Balancing Freshwater Needs in a Changing Environment."

Multimedia | December 2018

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project the developed science-based, stakeholder-informed recommendations for freshwater management along Texas' central coast.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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. 

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Report | November 2018

This document summarizes a tool developed by the NERRS to evaluate and compare the ability of tidal marshes to thrive as sea level rises.

Journal Article | November 2018

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. 

Tool | November 2018

This tool is a novel approach to compare the resilience of different marshes to sea level rise. 

Project Overview | October 2018

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.
