Assessing Blue Carbon Storage at Sites Restored th...

To mitigate the impacts of climate change, there is a global initiative to quantify and award carbon credits for restoration and conservation of blue carbon habitats. These habitats are known ...

Assessment of the Beneficial Use of Dredged Sedime...

Navigation channels across the country require regular maintenance dredging to avoid infilling with sediments and becoming impassible. In an experimental strategy that is often referred to as “beneficial use,” sediments ...

Considerations and Tradeoffs of UAS-based Coastal ...

Evaluating Nature-Based Solution Performance

We are evaluating the performance of three types of nature-based solutions: oyster reefs, coral reefs, and wetlands created from dredged sediments. We will examine project sites five or more years ...

Evaluating the Efficacy of Island Restoration and ...

We are assessing how the effort to restore the footprint of Swan Island in Chesapeake Bay with dunes and dredged sediments is affecting ecosystems that surround the island and the ...

Supporting Redesign of Battleship NORTH CAROLINA P...

In response to repeated nuisance flooding events that have impacted operations and visitor access at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA Park, NCCOS scientists are supporting park mangers in their efforts to ...

Synthesizing Evidence on the Performance of Nature...

We are summarizing existing information on how actions working with nature to meet society’s and nature’s needs, called nature-based solutions (NBS), help boost coastal resilience. We aim to collate global ...

The Role of Blue Carbon Ecosystems in Natural Infr...

Researchers collect vegetation samples in the high marsh habitat at Deal Island, MD A sediment core taken from 1m below the surface of the saltmarsh at Deal Island, MD. "Blue ...

Right Plants in Right Places Key to Island Restora...

Natural breakwaters — such as marshes, islands, and oyster reefs — help protect people and property from coastal flooding by damping wave energy and slowing storm surge. Despite these advantages, ...

Optimal Survey Designs for Use of Uncrewed Aircraf...

An uncrewed aircraft system takes flight to capture aerial imagery of a coastal wetland. Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (UAS) are often used in scientific observations of land- and seascapes, taking photographs ...

New Report Provides Performance Evaluation Framewo...

Thin Layer Sediment Placement Boosts Marsh Growth

A new NCCOS study shows that spreading a thin layer of sediment on low-lying marshes promotes vegetation growth that builds elevation. The technique may be an effective way to restore ...

New Report Presents Framework for Advancing the Pr...
