The Resilience and Adaptation in New England (RAINE) Database

The Resilience and Adaptation in New England (RAINE) database catalogs vulnerability, resilience, and adaptation plans, along with other reports, and web pages. RAINE provides information about these actions at the state, regional, watershed, and local level in New England. It not only includes links to web pages, reports, and plans, but also examples of presentations that communities use to engage their citizens, what tools they used to identify their vulnerabilities, and who funded their projects.

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.
