This guide is designed to be a resource for current and potential oyster growers that want to understand and maximize the water quality benefits of their aquaculture operations.
This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that explores how oyster aquaculture practices may be used to remediate water quality in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
This resource includes links to five datasets generated by a collaborative research project that measured nitrogen removal from oyster aquaculture using complement biogeochemistry and genetic methods.
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 article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.
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.
These American Sign Language video modules address Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise, teaching important concepts as well as new scientific vocabulary in sign language.
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 resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the June 2020 webinar Credit for Going Green: Using an Expert Panel Process to Quantify the Benefits of Buffers.
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 paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
These video modules introduce the conceputs and vocabulary of estuary ecology using American Sign Language. Five videos are available for the following topics: Watersheds, Water Quality, Water Quality Monitoring, Estuary Values, and Sea Level Rise.
The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.
