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.
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.
This protocol is intended to enable wetland managers, conservationists, and other practitioners to monitor and estimate a wetland’s long-term Total Phosphorus (TP) retention capacity threshold.
This infographic illustrates the role wetlands can play in removing total phosphorus from the water and ultimately help improve water quality and reduce Harmful Algal Blooms in Lake Erie. The infographic describes how the researchers estimated long-term phosphorus retention capacity for different types of wetlands in Ohio and provides suggestions as to how different audiences might be able to contribute to this effort.
In collaboration with several local partners, Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve conducted a study aimed at understanding different wetlands' long-term capacity for removing nutrients. Together, they produced this story map that demonstrates the importance of wetland services, explains different types of wetlands and management priorities, and summarizes how the team estimated the long-term phosphorus retention capacities of a variety of wetland types based on samples collected from sites in Ohio, including the Lake Erie watershed.
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.
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 document contains three lesson plans developed as part of a 2016 Collaborative Research project. The lesson plans help students explore the causes and impacts of stormwater discharges.
This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Kinsey Fischer, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.
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.
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.
