This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that facilitated the development of a collaborative research agenda to study the ecological and physical impacts of storm surge barriers on the Hudson River Estuary.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the October 2020 webinar Decision Support for Siting of Shellfish Aquaculture.
This document summarizes key lessons that emerged during the July 2020 panel webinar Innovative Approaches to Integrating Research and K-12 Education to Advance Estuary Stewardship. In addition to providing a record of the Q&A, this document also contains short descriptions of some education efforts across the reserve system and ideas for expanding the reach of education in new and existing projects.
This journal article summarizes results from an experimental living shoreline installation at GTM Reserve in northeast Florida and reveals who how well the installations dampened boat wakes.
This factsheet summarizes the results of a project that studied small-scale changes around oyster farms and assessed larger-scale ecosystem-level alterations to provide a local assessment of ecosystem services of shellfish aquaculture.
This tool provides a framework for discussing a range of criteria when evaluating locations for shellfish aquaculture.
This article published in Ecological Engineering summarizes findings from a project that installed a series of experimental living shorelines on a particularly high energy shoreline in GTM Reserve, Florida.
This slide deck summarizes findings from a collaborative research that looked at the ecological impacts and ecosystem service benefits of oyster farms in North Carolina.
This MS Thesis summarizes research on the impacts of shellfish aquaculture on native populations of eastern oysters in North Carolina
This MS thesis summarizes field studies comparing the biological communities around oyster farms with natural or restored natural oyster reefs in North Carolina.
This project overview describes a 2016 Collaborative Research project in which researchers are conducting the first-ever comprehensive blue carbon assessment in Pacific Northwest tidal wetlands.
This project overview describes a 2018 Catalyst project that demonstrated the feasibility of including carbon finance in funding strategies that support the conservation and restoration of tidal wetlands in the Pacific Northwest.
This resource contains the webinar recording as well as the presenter slides and Q&A responses from the September 2020 webinar Dams and Sediment in the Hudson.
These five related carbon storage, greenhouse gas flux and environmental variable datasets were generated by the Bringing Wetlands to Market research team and used to develop a coastal wetland greenhouse gas model for New England.
This article, which appeared in Global Change Biology, discusses findings from a study that quantified total ecosystem carbon stocks of major tidal wetland types in the Pacific Northwest.
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.
This curriculum was developed as part of a 2018 Science Transfer project to share knowledge and lessons learned about managing conflict in collaborative science.
This guidance report from New York State’s Department of Environmental Conservation and Department of State provides an overview of natural resilience measures and how they can reduce risk of flooding and erosion.
