The Northern Gulf of Mexico Sentinel Site Cooperative has published the second issue of Cooperative Ternary, a newsletter focused on the latest and greatest from all areas of the sea-level rise science to stewardship continuum. The newsletter helps keep individuals and organizations involved on any level with sea-level rise appraised of the latest happenings. Each issue of the newsletter, dubbed Cooperative Ternary because it comes out three times a year, has five quick sections and a feature story or two.
- The Conference Room – Information and links about upcoming meetings, workshops, and conferences
- Tool Box – Recently released or updated tools and assets for use in SLR research, modeling, management, community planning, or outreach
- Research Nook – Abstracts from exciting, sea-level rise, peer-reviewed research that has recently been published
- Cash Corner – A list of funding opportunities relevant to sea-level rise on the Gulf Coast
- Data Personals – A fun twist on the old personal ads from the newspapers, the Data Personals section helps advertise new data sets and requests for already existing data
The most recent issue had great stories featuring the just released U.S. Geological Survey’s Sea-level rise modeling handbook: Resource guide for coastal land managers, engineers, and scientists and a new, affordable method to research in-situ impacts of sea-level rise in coastal wetlands developed by researchers right here on the Mississippi-Alabama coast.
The newsletter is now also sporting the brand new logo for the Cooperative. The logo was developed through an online design contest. After two weeks and 65 entries, all of the Cooperative partners voted on a short list narrowed down by the design team. You can view the newsletter here, and be sure to subscribe to the newsletter by email.
In addition to the newsletter, the Northern Gulf of Mexico Sentinel Site Cooperative has recently started a twitter feed to keep partners and stakeholders informed in between newsletters. We share updates from our partners, and announce new tools, research, and success stories as they happen – improving sea-level rise stewardship one tweet at a time! Follow us.
