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 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.
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 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.
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.
This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.
This website was developed by a 2017 Science Transfer project team to provide stakeholders along the Mississippi-Alabama coast with up-to-date data on how human wastewater affects water quality and tangible recommendations for improving it.
This "edutainment" packet, developed by a 2016 Science Transfer team, is an outreach tool that describes threats to water quality along the Mississippi-Alabama coastline and helps end users understand how they can they can take actionable steps to improve local water quality.
In this video, three different methods for growing oysters are compared to help towns select the most cost-effective and environmentally-responsible strategy for restoring water quality along their coastline.
This project overview describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project that studied the legacy effects of land use change on water quality in Grand Bay, Mississippi.
This project overview describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that developed products and tools that help end users on the Mississippi-Alabama coast learn how to minimize their impact on water quality.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that is developing tools and materials to educate the public and decision-makers about the ways that man-made land use changes affect water quality, fisheries, and human health in the region around Grand Bay, Mississippi.
This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where three Northeast reserves are collaborating to develop consensus-based recommendations for pollutant load reduction performance curves to help New Hampshire communities use buffers to meet in-stream pollution reduction targets.
This graphic was developed as part of a research project in Cape Cod exploring how much nitrogen is removed from coastal waters by common oyster aquaculture methods, and what culturing practices should be adopted to maximize benefits for water quality.
