Digital Coast

The Digital Coast is a collaborative effort of organizations committed to providing data and information, tools, and training resources to help address timely coastal issues - including land use, coastal conservation, hazards, marine spatial planning, and climate change. NOAA's Coastal Services Center is maintaining the Digital Coast website which provides access to all the resources being developed and contributed by academic institutions, public and private sector entities.  This curated collection of coastal and ocean data and tools are directed at decision makers, practitioners, and technicians.

The Bottom Line on Climate Change - Come Heat and High Water: Climate Risk in the Southeastern U.S. and Texas

July 30, 2015

This report was developed by the Risky Business Project, whose mission is to quantify the economic risks to the U.S. from unmitigated climate change. This report focuses on the Southeast and Texas and offers a first step toward defining the range of potential economic consequences to this region based on current climate projections through 2100.

U.S. Department of Transportation's Gulf Coast Study

January 2015

The U.S. Department of Transportation conducted the Gulf Coast Study to better understand the range of potential climate change impacts on transportation infrastructure and identify possible strategies for adapting infrastructure. It was conducted in two major phases, starting with Phase 1 (completed in 2008), and ending with the completion of Phase 2 in 2015.

Impacts of Climate Change and Variability on Transportation Systems and Infrastructure: The Gulf Coast Study, Phase 2 (Mobile, Alabama)

October 2014

The U. S. Department of Transportation's (USDOT) Center for Climate Change and Environmental Forecasting conducted a comprehensive, multi-phase study of climate change impacts on transportation in the Central Gulf Coast region. This report, led by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), represents the completion of the second phase of research on climate change impacts in the region. The Gulf Coast study initially looked at the potential impacts of climate change on transportation infrastructure in the region under a Phase 1 effort that was completed in 2008.

Coastal Resilience Index: A Community Self-Assessment

November 2010

Developed from a partnership between the Gulf of Mexico Alliance, the Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium, Louisiana Sea Grant, Texas Sea Grant, Florida Sea Grant, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coastal Storms Program and the Gulf of Mexico Program, the Coastal Resilience Index was designed to help every coastal community become more resilient to the impacts of climate change, such as sea level rise, storm surge and flooding.

Effectively Addressing Climate Change Through Adaptation for the Energy Gulf Coast

October 2010

This presentation provides a synthesis of the analysis conducted on the economic impacts of climate change on the Gulf Coast. The research provides current and projected costs of storm surges, sea level rise, and wind related damage over the next 20 years. The risks, across numerous asset types, such as on-shore and off-shore oil and gas structures, and geographic areas are evaluated. Potential costs and benefits of numerous possible adaptation measures are presented. .

Coastal Vulnerability Assessment of the Northern Gulf of Mexico to Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Change

July 2010

This report, prepared by the U. S. Geologic Survey, uses an index to assess the vulnerability of the Gulf Coast - from Galveston, Texas to Panama City, Florida.   The Coastal Vulnerability Index (CVI) applied is based on six factors that influence the risk sea-level rise poses:  geomorphology, historical shoreline change rate, regional coastal slope, relative sea-level change, mean significant wave height, and mean tidal range.   CVI data can be used in at least two ways: (1) as a way of identifying areas where physical changes are most likely to occur as sea-level rises, and (2) as a planning tool for managing and protecting resources along the Northern Gulf of Mexico.

Vulnerability and Climate Change in the U.S. Southeast

Oxfam America is funding programs in Louisiana and elsewhere in the Southeastern U.S. to help those most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change to adapt and be better prepared. The goal of this project is to bring a fuller understanding of social vulnerabilities due to climate change in the U.S. southeast region to the public through a multidisciplinary examination of risks, hazards, and disaster.

Building a Resilient Energy Gulf Coast: Executive Report

2010

Building a Resilient Energy Gulf Coast represents the first comprehensive analysis of climate risks and adaptation economics along the U.S. Gulf Coast. Entergy Corp., America’s third-largest utility company, commissioned this study looking at the potential damage to residential and commercial properties, infrastructure and assets across key energy sectors.  According to the report, over the next 20 years, the Gulf Coast could face cumulative economic damages of some $350 billion.

Synthesis and Assessment Product (SAP) 4.7: Impacts of Climate Variability and Change on Transportation Systems and Infrastructure - Gulf Coast Study

March 2008

This report is one in a series of 21 Synthesis and Assessment Products (SAPs) produced between 2004 and 2009, aimed at providing current assessments of climate change science in the U. S. to inform public debate, policy, and operational decisions. This SAP investigates risks to transportation systems in the Gulf Coast from climate change, and assesses the steps managers and policy makers can take to ensure the safety and resilience of those transportation systems. The findings represent the first phase of a three phased research effort.
