Webinar Summary | November 2020

This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the November 2020 webinar Measuring Climate Adaptation Success and Progress: Introduction to the Resilience Metrics Toolkit

Data | November 2020

These datasets are from an intensive field sampling in and adjacent to aquaculture operations in North Carolina, concentrating on wild shellfish resources and the physical and chemical environment, to assess ecosystem services and potential impacts of the oyster farms.

Data | November 2020

This dataset contains processed Surface Elevation Table data from five reserves along with metadata, R scripts, reports, and figures, illustrating how SET can be processed, analyzed and visualized.

Factsheet | November 2020

This factsheet describes the process of environmental DNA (eDNA) water sampling in estuarine systems, and provides specific methdology recommendations to facilitate detection of invasive species.

Data | November 2020

This data resource includes eDNA sequences, fish species summary tables, and DNA extractions from Wells, Great Bay, Hudson, Apalachicola, South Slough, and Heʻeia National Estuarine Research Reserves.

Journal Article | November 2020

This article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.
