This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the April 2021 webinar Promoting Resilient Groundwater and Holistic Watershed Management in Alaska’s Kenai Lowlands.
This article, published in JGR Oceans in 2020, describes the use of a high-resolution model of water and sediment dynamics used in the Coos Bay estuary in Oregon to assess how 150 years of modification have altered sediment storage and transport.
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.
These resources from a stakeholder visit to the Stariski Creek Meadows headwaters in July 2019 were developed as part of a project to improve groundwater management on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
This webinar from the Montana Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Seminar Series presents methods and outcomes from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
This geodatabase of groundwater on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska, can be used as a foundation for decision-making to determine the locations of aquifers and predict groundwater discharge to streams.
This webinar for decision makers presents findings from a 2017 collaborative research project that developed a conceptual model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
These sediment and hydrodynamic data were collected as part of the 2016-2020 collaborative research project Improved Understanding of Sediment Dynamics for the Coos Estuary that produced a new bathymetric dataset for Coos Bay and a hydrodynamic model characterizing sediment distribution and circulation in the estuary.
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 project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project where Kachemak Bay Reserve staff and local partners are developing a conceptual model and geospatial layer that can be used to predict specific locations where groundwater discharge and recharge occur.
This collection of videos uses a hydrodynamic model to show salinity changes in the Coos estuary in different geographies and seasons.
This article uses a hydrodynamic model of the Coos estuary in southwestern Orgeon to examine seasonal variability of salinity dynamics and estuarine exchange flow.
This article discusses changes to the Coos estuary over the past 150 years, and their present and future impacts.
