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 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 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 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 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
This factsheet summarizes findings from the Dams and Sediment in the Hudson collaborative research project related to tidal wetlands in the Hudson River estuary.
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 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 code (R and MATLAB) can be used to analyze NERRS System-Wide Monitoring Program time series data.
This project overview describes a 2015 Science Transfer project that produced tools, graphical support, and training for research staff at the Mid-Atlantic reserves to better utilize reserve monitoring data.
These slides summarize a webinar given by Thomas Grothues of the Jacques Cousteau Reserve on September 19, 2018 about methods for analyzing trends in SWMP temperature with missing data.
