Factsheet | October 2021

This factsheet, written as a resource for a three-year Collaborative Research project, describes measures and proposed management plans for marsh resilience to create a long-term monitoring programs and national-level synthesis efforts. 

News | August 2021
Project Overview | January 2021

This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project led by Grand Bay Reserve that developed standardized tools to quality-check, analyze, and visualize Surface Elevation Table data. 

Data | August 2020
Tool | August 2020

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.

Multimedia | August 2020

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.

Tool | May 2020

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.

Factsheet | May 2020

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.

Report | April 2020

This collection of reports summarizes Surface Elevation Table (SET) data at fiften reserves. A technical report analyzing of surface elevation change and a summary for oureach purposes is provided for each reserve.

Multimedia | February 2020

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
