The project involves planting a saltmarsh and an oyster reef. The first step was applying for a CAMA permit because we need to distribute oyster-shell cultch near the shoreline. We anticipate that oyster larvae will settle on the shell and a … Continue reading
Why does the IMS shoreline need to be restored? Because… 1) It currently looks like this: 2) We are supposed to be stewards of the coast and we are not setting a good example with our rip-rap revetment. 3) … Continue reading
Inter-tidal reefs grow so quickly, they should be able to keep up with any future rate of sea-level rise. That’s good news because in the lower parts of estuaries oyster reefs need to maintain an intertidal elevation to thrive and … Continue reading
Why is Ethan so happy? Well, he just published a new paper in Earth Surface Processes and Landforms entitled, “Evaluating proxies for estimating subaerial beach volume change across increasing time scales and various morphologies“. In the paper, Ethan critically evaluates … Continue reading
Bayhead deltas are located where rivers flow into estuaries. They have broad low-elevation plains that are sensitive to small increases in the rate of sea-level rise. In the past, when sea level was rising at a rate of 1 m … Continue reading
Ethan and Justin created SciREN, the Scientific Research and Education Network, to establish a forum through which scientists can efficiently provide teachers scientific resources for the classroom. The first event was held at the Pine Knoll Shores Aquarium in April … Continue reading

Justin Ridge just learned that he was awarded a North Carolina Sea Grant and N.C. Coastal Reserve’s Coastal Research Fellowship for his proposal entitled: LANDSCAPE CONNECTIVITY INFLUENCES GROWTH AND ACCRETION IN TEMPERATE BIOGENIC REEFS AND ADJACENT SALT MARSHES. The fellowship … Continue reading
We are taking applications from middle and high school science teachers to participate in a workshop at IMS in the Spring of 2014. The goal is to create lesson plans using data-rich movies of intertidal habitats with emphasis on fish … Continue reading
Back in July we spent the day with David Huppert, who was producing a video story on oyster-reef restoration for the PBS show Quest. He tagged along with us while we collected some laser-scanning data from a natural reef near … Continue reading
