Connecticut Coastal Hazards Viewer
The Connecticut Coastal Hazards Viewer is designed to allow users access to several pertinent suites of data for coastal Connecticut. Presented here are data representing sea level rise, high-resolution coastal elevation, hurricane storm surge, coastal erosion, and environmental observations such as tides, water quality, waves and currents.
Administered by the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), this web portal provides a centralized source of information for municipal officials, coastal property owners, state coastal managers, and the general public on coastal hazards, including those associated with climate change. Links to primers on hazards and climate change are provided, along with information on management practices and a visualization tool for inundation from example scenarios.
This viewer and several of the accompanying geospatial data sets were assembled to support the Connecticut Coastal Hazards Analysis and Management Project a two-year partnership between the CT DEEP, the University of Connecticut Marine Sciences Department, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Coastal Services Center Coastal Management Fellowship Program.
