Data | February 2021

This data resource includes marsh vegetation, water level data and modeling outputs from a project that examined how Piermont Marsh in New York buffers the impacts of storms.

Journal Article | January 2021

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.

Webinar Summary | October 2020

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.

Webinar Summary | September 2020

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.

Report | August 2020

This guidance report from New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation and Department of State provides an overview of natural resilience measures and how they can reduce risk of flooding and erosion.

Project Overview | August 2020

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.

Journal Article | June 2020

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.

Journal Article | June 2020

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.

Factsheet | June 2020

This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) collaborative research project.

Factsheet | June 2020

This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson (DaSH) collaborative research project related to sediment trapped behind dams and sediment supply in the Hudson River estuary

Factsheet | June 2020

This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project related to tidal wetlands in the Hudson River estuary.

Website | June 2019

This website houses the Rapid Assessment Protocol for assessing the physical and ecological performance of nature-based engineered shoreline structures. You can also access additional resources associated with the Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project, including demonstration site case studies along the Hudson River. 

Webinar Summary | April 2019

This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for living shorelines, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among living shorelines practitioners and researchers.

Management Brief | April 2019

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the Living Shorelines panel webinar on April 11, 2019.

Data | March 2019

This dataset includes a suite of measures of ecological and physical functions of built sustainable shoreline structures at a set of demonstration sites along the Hudson River. 

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2015 Collaborative Research project that is developing and field-validating rapid assessment protocols for physical and ecological functions of ecologically-enhanced shorelines.

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project that developed products to support New York State decision makers considering nature-based shoreline approaches and other natural resilience measures. 

Tool | September 2018

This manual was developed as part of the Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines Project and describes simple, low-cost, representative methods for evaluating the function and integrity of ecologically enhanced shoreline projects.

Report | July 2015

As part of the 2010 Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines project, the project team conducted this forensic analysis of six sites on the Hudson River to study how each site responded to severe storms. 

Tool | July 2015

This tool, developed for the 2011 Hudson River Sustainable Shorelines project, can be used to provide a rough quantification of site attributes known to affect biota and ecological processes in the shore zone.
