May 19, 2014 — With the addition of South Carolina data to the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer, the Southeast region states join the West Coast, Northeast, and Mid-Atlantic states in having access to coastal flooding scenarios and uncertainty maps as well as marsh migration, social vulnerability, and flood frequency visualizations. Explore the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer to see how sea level rise might affect your area.
Also new is the ability to easily download the viewer data. Access to the digital elevation models (DEMs) and the inundation, flood frequency, and mapping confidence layers allows users involved in climate adaptation planning to incorporate the data into their own applications and perform their own spatial analyses, such as vulnerability assessments.
Being able to visualize potential impacts from sea level rise is a powerful planning tool, and the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer brings this capability to coastal communities. This product is part of the Digital Coast initiative, which is led by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Services Center.
