Using Geographic Tools to identify industrial and commercial facilities for which pollution prevention efforts may reduce exposure to hazards associated with climate-related flooding

February 2017

This New Jersey focused report describes a Rutgers University project using geospatial analytical tools with environmental, flood, and climate data to inform state and federal program’s operations, local resilience planning, and public awareness. Rutgers researchers created a database of of 1,302 active industrial and commercial facilities in New Jersey and determined their vulnerability to flood impacts as climate conditions change, and the potential future exposures in communities where these facilities reside.

Populations Vulnerable to Climate Change in New Jersey: Update of a Statistical Analysis

June 2015

In order to characterize and locate frontline communities in New Jersey, this study examines the demographic and geographic attributes of socially-vulnerable groups and their exposure to flooding (the cause of nearly all past presidential declarations in the state). The research revealed that a disproportionate number of highly socially-vulnerable census tracts are located in flood hazard areas.

Coastal Flood Risk and Climate Change Implications for New Jersey’s Senior Citizens

April 2015

This report, from the Rutgers Climate Institute, focuses on the social vulnerability and climate-related risks faced by the elderly population in New Jersey, defined as those over 65 years old. The authors focus on coastal flooding and storm surges, present-day impacts that are expected to intensify with continued climate change. The report describes the three characteristics of social vulnerability experienced by many seniors: limited mobility; compromised physical and mental health; and sometimes reduced resources, including income and assistance.
