This open-access article examines how a proposed surge barrier for New York harbor might perform over time as sea level rises and storms become more frequenty.
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
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.
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.
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.
This data resource includes eDNA sequences, fish species summary tables, and DNA extractions from Wells, Great Bay, Hudson, Apalachicola, South Slough, and He’eia National Estuarine Research Reserves.
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.
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.
