National Sea Grant Resilience Toolkit

The National Sea Grant Resilience Toolkit is a public access site with hundreds of resources from Sea Grant institutions and partnerships.  These resources or tools are primarily short reports on coastal resilience best practices and projects conducted through Sea Grant programs. The “Tools” available on the site include: Decision Support Tools, Technical Assistance, Guides and Manuals, Training, Communities of Practice, Data and Assessments, and Legal Services.   “Legal Services” has sectoral legal information and reviews of common law tools from Sea Grant partners.

Louisiana Flood Risk and Resilience Viewer

Louisiana's Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) has launched a “Flood Risk and Resilience Viewer,” an online resource which displays information on coastal land change, flood risk, and impacts to communities. This innovative tool provides coastal residents with access to the state’s best information about how Louisiana’s coast may change in the future, as well as resources to make communities and properties safer.

Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS)

The Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS) is a numerical modeling system used to predict coastal flooding due to climate change-driven sea-level rise and storms. CoSMos provides explicit, deterministic modeling of all the relevant physics (e. g. , tides, waves, surge) of a coastal storm scaled down to local flood resolution projections. The system provides coastal planners and emergency managers with hazard information to inform coastal management, mitigate physical damage, and enhance public safety.

NRDC Ocean Acidification Hotspots Map

September 2015

The Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) has developed an online interactive map of ocean acidification implications on coastal communities. The mapping approach determines where the ocean chemistry is changing most rapidly, where vulnerable species are located, and where people who most depend on these species reside. The intersection of these factors reveals an elevated risk from ocean acidification.

MARCO: Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal

The Mid-Atlantic Ocean Data Portal is an online toolkit and resource center developed by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Council on the Ocean (MARCO). The Data Portal serves as a platform to engage all stakeholders in the five coastal Mid-Atlantic states, putting all of the essential data and state-of-the-art mapping and visualization technology into the hands of the agencies, industry, community leaders, and stakeholders engaged in ocean planning.

Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flood Web Tools Comparison Matrix

June 2015

This online tool comparison matrix compares the functions and methods of publicly available sea level rise and coastal flood web tools - highlighting key features and differences between them - for all U.S. coastal states. Hosted by Climate Central, this chart is a “one-stop source of information” to coastal managers and planners.

NOAA Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper

2015

The Coastal Flood Exposure Mapper is an online mapping tool to view flooding hazards potential for the East Coast, West Coast, Gulf of Mexico, and Hawaiian coastal communities in the U.S. The mapper was developed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to promote adaptation planning around coastal flood hazard risks and associated vulnerabilities.

The National Map: 3D Elevation Program (3DEP)

July 18, 2014

The Department of the Interior's U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and other Federal agencies have launched a 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) partnership to develop advanced 3-dimensional mapping data of the United States. These data and related tools will be used in the areas of flood risk management, water resource planning, mitigation of coastal erosion and storm surge impacts, and identification of landslide hazards - as "an essential component of supporting action on climate resilience."
