This 2021 article which appeared in Ecology and Society describes a research project exploring how alders, peatlands, and groundwater flows were incorporated into a spatial tool that was used in case studies with user groups and in outreach efforts. The paper includes evidence that these efforts to engage with stakeholders are resulting in attitudinal shifts as well as on-the-ground changes in peoples’ decision-making.
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 video was created by two high school students from the Alaska Native village of Tyonek, documenting their communities groundwater uses, and represents one output from engaging with students from a 2017 collaborative research project.
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.
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 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.
This website contains data and files to run hydrodynamic modeling simulations for Coos estuary in southwestern Oregon.
This story map about salmon, groundwater, and people in the Kenai Lowlands, Alaska can help local stakeholders better understand groundwater dynamics.
These scientific illustrations show groundwater flows, seeps, and springs. They were created as part of a 2017 Collaborative Research project that developed a conceptional model for groundwater discharge and recharge on the Kenai Peninsula, Alaska.
The Communities, Lands & Waterways Data Source is an encyclopedic compilation of all available data describing the socioeconomic and environmental conditions in the Coos Bay area.
This document is a summarization of data that describe the environmental and socioeconomic conditions in Coos Bay's South Slough and Coastal Frontal watersheds in Oregon.
This community vision, developed as part of a 2012 Collaborative Research project, describes desired future conditions stakeholders and residents hope to see for the South Slough and Coastal Frontal sub-basins of the Coos Watershed.
This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that established the Partnership for Coastal Watersheds, a group of local stakeholders that represents diverse interests in Oregon's Coos Bay.
