Case Study | September 2020

These four case studies give examples of four best practices for conflict management in collaborative science. They were developed as part of the Resilience Dialogues project to share lessons learned about effective collaboration from within the National Estuarine Research Reserve System.

Tool | September 2020

This curriculum was developed as part of a 2018 Science Transfer project to share knowledge and lessons learned about managing conflict in collaborative science.

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.

Tool | March 2020

This GitHub Repository houses the statistical code, a model interface and example datasets to enable others to calcuate the retention capacity of a wetland.

Report | March 2020

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.

Webinar Summary | February 2020

This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the February 2020 webinar Resilience Dialogues: Strategies for Conflict Management in Collaborative Science. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains an introduction to some key principles of collaboration, lessons learned about conflict management in collaborative science, and example case studies from real projects.

Multimedia | January 2020

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.

Multimedia | January 2020

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.

Webinar Summary | September 2019

This document is a comprehensive post-webinar report that includes a summary of the panel discussion, records of the Q&A session and comments submitted by attendees about next steps for climate resilience, the results of audience polls administered during the webinar, an account of who attended the webinar, and a list of participants who opted to list their contact information to foster connections among climate adaptation and resilience practitioners and researchers.

Management Brief | September 2019

This management brief, prepared by Science Collaborative Staff, is the final version of the document incorporating content from the September 9, 2019 panel webinar on Climate Adaptation and Resilience.

Case Study | December 2018

This report contains case studies of low impact development implementation and performance in Northern Ohio as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project.

Report | December 2018

This paper describes management and structural practices that can be used to manage stormwater runoff from a development site after construction is complete. 

Report | December 2018

This report summarizes the results of interviews with 18 stormwater professionals in Ohio as part of a 2011 Collaborative Research project led by Old Woman Creek Reserve.

Report | December 2018

This report contains feedback and reflections on the collaborative part of the “Implementing Credits and Incentives for Innovative Stormwater Solutions in Ohio.”

Project Overview | December 2018

This project overview describes a 2011 Collaborative Research project in which the Old Woman Creek Reserve and partners provided a local demonstration of low-impact development stormwater treatments in Ohio.

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where 13 reserves are sharing their experiences in managing conflict during collaborative research projects and synthesizing lessons learned.

Project Overview | October 2018

This project overview describes a 2017 Collaborative Research project that generated precise estimates of nutrient retention by Lake Erie wetlands to inform management and decision making. 

News | September 2017

Over $2.6 million will be awarded to six projects by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Estuarine Research Reserve System Science Collaborative that engage research efforts on 12 reserves across the nation.
