2016

STORMTOOLS is a set of comprehensive mapping tools providing a series of maps and data sets that depict the sea level rise and storm surge in Rhode Island. The site now features a set of data layers for municipalities. STORMTOOLS is intended as a way to make the data outputs of a complex set of modeling processes freely available, and is designed to help homeowners and municipalities in Rhode Island better understand their risks from coastal storms and flooding, and to plan for sea level rise.

Recommendation of Sea Level Rise Planning Scenarios for Delaware: Technical Report

2017

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) first developed Recommended Sea Level Rise Scenarios for Delaware in 2009.  In 2016-2017, a new Delaware Sea Level Rise Technical Committee was convened to update the scenarios based on the latest scientific research and modeling. Led by Delaware Geological Survey and DNREC Delaware Coastal Programs, the Committee and these sea-level rise (SLR) planning scenarios respond to 2013 Executive Order 41 - which requires Delaware state agencies to factor SLR into capital improvement projects and land use decisions, and for DNREC to periodically update SLR scenarios with the best scientific data available.

National Equity Atlas

The National Equity Atlas, created by PolicyLink and the Program for Environmental and Regional Equity, is an online tool that allows users to find information on demographic changes, racial and economic inclusion, and potential economic gains from racial equity. Data is available for the largest 100 cities, 150 metropolitan regions, and all 50 states in the United States. While this resource does not address climate change, it can provide useful information to frame environmental justice and equity challenges that may be exacerbated by climate change.

EPA Climate Change Adaptation Resource Center (ARC-X)

October 6, 2016

The U. S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Adaptation Resource Center (ARC-X) is an interactive online tool designed to inform local decisionmakers about climate change impacts and adaptation solutions for communities across the U. S.  The tool provides information about climate change risks on sectors as selected by the user; relevant adaptation strategies; case studies illustrating how other communities have successfully adapted to those risks and tools to replicate their successes; and EPA funding opportunities.

New York’s Expanded USGS StreamStats Tool

December 2015

The U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) has developed a web-based application that operates in conjunction with the existing StreamStats application for New York State to incorporate projected precipitation changes under various 21st century climate change scenarios. This application will allow transportation planners and engineers to explore how climate change may affect high flows, which can assist with the design of over-water infrastructure (such as culverts and bridges) to accommodate these changes.
