Below, you will find ecosystem services resources specifically tailored for coastal systems. We suggest that you first examine the conceptual model collection, then explore the linked resources that build from these models. This page is an evolving resource portal—it will be periodically updated as we expand our resource collection over time.
These resources were developed through two different projects. The first was piloting an approach for ecosystem services management for the National Estuarine Research Reserve System, in partnership with NOAA and NERRS. The second project was developing common models and metrics for restoration projects in the Gulf of Mexico, in partnership with HRI and TNC, supported by the NAS Gulf Research Program.
