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.

U.S. Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas

July 27, 2016

The Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) has analyzed the exposure and vulnerability of coast military installations to tidal flooding and sea level rise through the end of the century. 18 East and Gulf Coast sites in Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, North Carolina, New Jersey, South Carolina, Virginia and Washington D. C. were selected to be representative of coastal installations nationwide in terms of size, geographic distribution and military branch. US Military on the Front Lines of Rising Seas includes an executive summary, a two-page fact sheet, and individual fact sheets for each of the 18 bases.

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.

Tracking the Effects of Sea Level Rise in Georgia's Coastal Communities

December 14, 2012

This report focuses on the sea level rise impacts as well as adaptation opportunities for three counties along the Georgia coast (Chatham, Liberty, and McIntosh).  The result of a semester-long graduate planning studio at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the project's goal is to provide residents, decision-makers, and researchers with information that can help to proactively plan for future sea level rise (SLR).

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. .

A Climate Change Vulnerability and Risk Assessment for Atlanta, Georgia

April 23, 2010

This report, a Masters thesis, provides climate change adaptation guidance to local decision makers by identifying vulnerable planning areas within the city and assessing the risks of expected climate impacts. The results of these analyses determined priority objectives for adaptation planning. The report also provides a framework for subsequent adaptation planning phases.

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.

State and Local Governments Plan for Development of Most Land Vulnerable to Rising Sea Level along the U.S. Atlantic Coast

October 27, 2009

Based on the analysis of planning data and current policies of 131 state and local land use plans from Massachusetts to Florida, the study identifies those coastal areas likely to be affected by rising water levels and classifies them based on the extent of development already in place and the potential for future development. The report explains that the existing extensive development on the Atlantic coast creates the need for coastal protective structures, which could negatively impact wetlands.

Economic and Environmental Costs of Climate Change: State Case Studies

This site provides PDF files of individual state case studies pertaining to the economic and environmental costs of climate change.   The studies were prepared by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the Center for Integrative Environmental Research (CIER) at the University of Maryland. The reports summarize climatic changes affecting 12 states, their potential fiscal impact, and the effect that future changes in climate may have on state economies. The research highlights the importance of planning for the possible effects of climate change on state natural and economic resources and explores options for reducing these effects.
