Coastal Inundation Toolkit

The Coastal Inundation Toolkit was developed by the Digital Coast Partnership Group to help communities understand and address coastal inundation issues - where water covers what is normally dry land. Information and resources are organized into 5 stages: understanding coastal inundation, identifying community risks and vulnerabilities, creating inundation maps, communicating risks and vulnerability, and discovering what others are doing to address inundation. For each of these 5 areas, explanations and guidance are provided with links to the specific resources available from Digital Coast to support that specific step in the process, making this a user-friendly way to support assessments and planning for sea level rise and extreme weather events.

This toolkit is an example of how the data, tools, and other information within Digital Coast can be used to address one of the five partner-priority issues of coastal conservation, hazards, land use, marine planning, and water quality. The toolkit provides the context and guidance for connecting the resources in the Digital Coast to the needs of coastal managers.
