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.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.
This resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.
This project overview describes the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project that assessed how sediment released by dam removals would affect the Hudson River estuary and provide practical tools to regulators and practitioners.
This article, submitted for publication in Geophysical Research Letters in 2020, uses turbidity observations to characterize estuary response following extreme discharge such as from storm-related flooding, which can be a proxy for sediment release from dam removals.
This article, submitted for publication to Earth Surface Processes and Landforms in 2020, describes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) project related to tidal wetland growth in the Hudson River estuary as a result of human activities. It presents sediment accumulation rates in marshes along the Hudson and reveals the rapid growth of marshes associated with anthropogenic structures.
This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) collaborative research project.

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 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.
