Webinar Summary | September 2021

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the September 2021 webinar Improved Understanding of Sediment Dynamics for the Coos Estuary.

Webinar Summary | May 2021

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the May 2021 webinar Can Oyster Aquaculture Help Restore Coastal Water Quality?

Journal Article | May 2021

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.

Webinar Summary | April 2021

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.

Journal Article | March 2021

This article, published in Frontiers in Marine Science in 2021, describes work done as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project conducted at Waquoit Bay Reserve in Massachusetts. The article explores the impacts of oyster aquaculture on nitrogen removal by examining bacterial processes in sediments underlying three of the most common aquaculture methods that vary in the proximity of oysters to the sediments.

Journal Article | February 2021

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.

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.

Journal Article | November 2020

This article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.

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.

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.

Webinar Summary | June 2020

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.

Journal Article | June 2020

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.

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.

Journal Article | June 2020

This article uses a hydrodynamic model of the Coos estuary in southwestern Orgeon to examine seasonal variability of salinity dynamics and estuarine exchange flow.

Journal Article | June 2020

This article discusses changes to the Coos estuary over the past 150 years, and their present and future impacts.

Webinar Summary | March 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the March 2020 webinar Estimating Long-term Phosphorus Retention Capacity of Riverine and Coastal Wetlands. In addition to taking audience questions, the team offered some ideas about how their work informed an ambitious water quality initiative in Ohio.

Journal Article | October 2019

This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
