Data | April 2021

This resource includes two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.

K-12 | February 2021

This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.

K-12 | February 2021

This curriculum resource book, developed by Duke University Maine Lab, describes a series of water quality activities for high school classes, including background material and worksheet handouts.

Multimedia | February 2021
Thesis or Dissertation | February 2021

This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Allison Kline, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.

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.

Journal Article | December 2020

This article, which appeared in Science of The Total Environment, describes a study assessing the extent and causes of potential fecal contamination in the frequently-visited Rachel Carson Reserve, NC.

Data | November 2020

These datasets are from an intensive field sampling in and adjacent to aquaculture operations in North Carolina, concentrating on wild shellfish resources and the physical and chemical environment, to assess ecosystem services and potential impacts of the oyster farms.

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.

Multimedia | October 2020

This slide deck summarizes findings from a collaborative research that looked at the ecological impacts and ecosystem service benefits of oyster farms in North Carolina.

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.

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.

K-12 | May 2019

This document contains three lesson plans developed as part of a 2016 Collaborative Research project. The lesson plans help students explore the causes and impacts of stormwater discharges.

Thesis or Dissertation | April 2019

This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Kinsey Fischer, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.

Multimedia | January 2019

This story map describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project spearheaded by North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve that investigated how swashes collect, transform, and export the nutrients and organic matter that fuel hypoxia along coastal South Carolina.
