Surging Seas is a suite of free public web tools for sea level rise and coastal flood analysis from Climate Central. Climate Central has identified many ways the Surging Seas web tool could be used with FEMA's National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)’s Community Rating System (CRS). CRS is a voluntary insurance rating program that recognizes communities for implementing floodplain management practices that exceed the Federal minimum requirements of the NFIP. In exchange for flood risk reduction, policyholders can receive reduced flood insurance premiums.
Climate Central has launched the Surging Seas Risk Finder tool for the state of Maryland, along with this high-level summary report of findings on coastal flooding risk and sea level rise impacts for the state. The report presents some of the major categories and highlights, with a focus on exposure below 5 and 9 feet. The Surging Seas Risk Finder presents thousands of combinations of analysis results by geography, water level, and variable. The tool has much more detailed and localized findings for Maryland - accessible via: http://sealevel.
Climate Central’s Surging Seas Risk Finder is an interactive sea level rise mapping and analysis toolkit which shows populations, infrastructure, and assets exposed to coastal flooding and sea level rise for every coastal state in the U.S. The Risk Finder includes interactive maps, tables and figures of results, risk timelines, downloadable data and local reports for cities, counties, states, and by zip code.
