This 2020 article which appeared in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences describes a study that examined pond development and properties in salt marshes in order to better characterize them under different management and sea level rise scenarios as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project.
This 2019 article, which appeared in Nature Geoscience, suggests the importance of the integration of decomposition mechanisms into blue carbon models for predicting soil organic carbon stores. These findings were generated as part of a 2017-2020 collaborative research project.
These marsh sustainability and hydrology datasets were collected as part of a 2017 collaborative research project.
This website, developed as part of a 2017 collaborative research project, describes the Marsh Sustainability and Hydrology project in detail and provides access to the MSH decision support tool.
This decision support tool, developed as part of a 2017 collaborative research project, allows users to select different combinations of tidal range, suspended sediment, ditch density, and sea-level rise variables and visualize predicted outcomes over different time frames.
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.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the March 2021 webinar Understanding the Role Coastal Marshes Play in Protecting Communities from Storm Surge and Flooding.
This dataset comprises the data collected and produced as part of the 2016 research project Investigating the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Nuisance Mosquitoes, and Resilience of Coastal Salt Marsh Systems.
This outreach tool summarizes the key takeways for a project that assessed the value of a coastal marsh in protecting coastal communities from storm surge and flooding amid a changing climate.
This article, published in Scientific Reports in 2021, describes work done as part of a 2016-2020 collaborative research project conducted at Hudson River Reserve in New York. The article describes a regression model that can be used for wetland restoration planning to help reduce storm-related structural damage.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the February 2021 webinar Understanding the Interconnectedness of Climate Change, Salt Marsh Resilience, and Nuisance Mosquitoes.
This collection of graphics was developed to support the project's outreach and communications efforts and is being made available for use by others.
These teaching modules for middle and high school educators is focused on the biology, ecology, and impacts of climate change on mosquitoes and their habitats.
This journal article describes a new approach for statistically modeling boat wakes, which can help managers better understand how boat traffic impacts shoreline erosion and sediment transport.
This data resource includes marsh vegetation, water level data and modeling outputs from a project that examined how Piermont Marsh in New York buffers the impacts of storms.
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.
This series of field and classroom-based experiments allows middle school students explore the problem of microplastics.
This lesson plan will introduce high school AP Environmental Science students to the concepts of sunscreen runoff and the implications it can have on nature. Students will apply sunscreen water to classroom plants and then draw conclusions about the ecological impactshttps://sciren.org/.
This curriculum resource book, developed by Duke University Maine Lab, describes a series of water quality activities for high school classes, including background material and worksheet handouts.
