This web resources includes a compilation of lesson plans for grades K - 12 about coastal and estuarine ecology that are intended to complement programs that involve schools in local wetland restoration projects.
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?
This 2021 article which appeared in Estuaries and Coasts provides a synthesis of native oyster restoration projects conducted from California, USA, to British Columbia, Canada.
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.
This guide is designed to be a resource for current and potential oyster growers that want to understand and maximize the water quality benefits of their aquaculture operations.
This 2021 article which appeared in Geophysical Research Letters describes a study that took a novel approach to characterize soil organic carbon accumulation supporting marsh elevation maintenance as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project.
These explainer videos, developed as part of a 2017 collaborative research project, help explain the motivation for the project, the approach, and the decision support tool and its application.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that conducted a collaborative, scientific modeling investigation to improve oyster population sustainability and management on Florida's Atlantic coast.
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 two related databases that include a range of water quality parameters measured at stormwater outfalls in Beaufort, NC.
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 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.
This open access article describes an assessment of the storm buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh, New York.
This poster, created by a Hollings Scholar who worked with Kachemak Bay NERR on a 2017 collaborative research project, describes the project and results.
This video was created by two high school students from the Alaska Native village of Tyonek, documenting their communities groundwater uses, and represents one output from engaging with students from a 2017 collaborative research project.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project that designed and applied predictive models to better understand the buffering services provided by Piermont Marsh on New York's Hudson River.
This 2020 article which appeared in Estuaries and Coasts describes a study that evaluated rates of gross oxygen production over different time scales in a shallow temperate salt marsh pond as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project.
This 2020 article which appeared in Geomorphology describes a model to predict marsh pond dynamics in New England salt marshes that was developed as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project .
