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 advisory committee charter, developed for a National Estuarine Research Reserve project to evaluate a thin-layer placement as a strategy for marsh resilience, offers an example for engaging diverse end users in collaborative research.
This story map and K-12 activity invites students to explore coastal marsh vulnerability to sea level rise and a collaborative experiment to enhance marsh resilience at the Chesapeake Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve in Virginia.
This open-access article, published 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 2018 catalyst project streamlined and enhanced mapping and decision support tools to help New Jersey coastal communities prepare for sea level rise and extreme storms.
This document provides guidance on the use of thin-layer sediment placement (TLP) as a tool for tidal marsh resilience in the face of sea-level rise.
This summary brochure describes thin-layer placement (TLP) as a strategy for marsh resilience, and National Estuarine Research Reserve System research and recommendations for TLP use.
This webinar was originally presented on February 20, 2020 as part of the Restoration Webinar Series, hosted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's National Conservation Training Center. Presenters: Kerstin Wasson, Beth Watson, and Kenny Raposa
This Master's thesis examines sediment accumulation in two disparate coastal environments, including the Hudson River Reserve, as part of a larger research project about marsh formation and resilience, sediment movement, and the potential impact of dam removals.
This document summarizes a December 2017 workshop hosted by Mission-Aransas Reserve that explored ways to generate a return on investment from wetland preservation and restoration projects in Texas.
This dissertation was written by PhD student working at Hudson River Reserve on a project that assessed the buffering services of a coastal marsh in New York.
