When evaluating potential impacts from sea-level rise and addressing them, it makes sense to look at them geographically. This week our presenter, Keith VanGraafeiland, shared the High Tide Flooding app during his presentation. Here you can click on a location in the map and see a projection of how many days this location experience high tide flooding from today through the year 2100. Read Keith's blog to learn more about the data used to create this app and how apps like this can be used to inform others.
Below is a list of additional resources on the topic of sea-level rise and its impacts.
High tide flooding will have the most impact on six states across the U.S. over the next ten years. Most vulnerable areas include the Gulf States of Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi, followed by the Atlantic States of New Jersey, Virginia, and New York. These states contain the top ten locations in the U.S. that will be most impacted by flooding. View this story map to learn more.
NOAA/NOS, Old Dominion University, and Esri worked together to share data and modeling projections of future impacts a community will see due to sea-level rise. This story map walks you through the analysis and results they found and what other communities can do to increase their understanding of impacts and build a plan of action.
