Climate Adaptation for Coastal Communities
Conveys information and practical skills for incorporating climate considerations into planning processes, and provides time in class to apply what is learned to individual issues
Coastal Inundation Mapping
Provides information on coastal inundation issues and teaches spatial techniques for mapping inundation
Planning for Climate Change
Teaches local and state planners about climate change, as well as the planning processes and actions that can help their communities prepare for climate change impacts
Frequently Asked Questions about the Tool
Answers questions about the data, the modeling approach, and using the tool
"Incorporating Sea Level Change Scenarios at the Local Level"
Outlines eight steps to help communities calculate sea level change scenarios and communicate impacts
"Marshes on the Move"
Provides a basic understanding of the parameters and uncertainties involved in modeling the future impacts of sea level rise on coastal wetlands. This guide is intended for people who use model outputs for decision-making but do not build models themselves.
"New Mapping Tool and Techniques for Visualizing Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts"
Provides a brief history of previous sea level change visualization pilot projects, a detailed discussion of new methods, and future plans for expanding the Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer to the rest of the U.S.
