A project focused on providing coastal managers with knowledge and tools surrounding impacts of future tides and storm surge, incorporating a dynamic coastline.

Status: Completed

The Effects of Sea-Level Rise – Northern Gulf of Mexico (ESLR-NGOM) project combines field observation and modeling to provides coastal managers with the knowledge and tools to prepare for the impacts of tides and storm surge given the dynamic coastlines due to sea-level rise (i.e., as compared to a static ‘bathtub’ approach) as well as marsh productivity with increasing sea level.

ESLR-NGOM Story Map: Hydro-MEM

This story map for Hydro-MEM (Hydrodynamic Marsh Equilibrium Model) forecasts marsh productivity and the average high water under various sea-level rise scenarios and using a “system of systems” modeling approach for Grand Bay, MS; Weeks Bay, AL; and Apalachicola, FL.

ESLR-NGOM Story Map: Storm Surge

This story map uses the original Coastal Dynamics of Sea-Level Rise (CDSLR) model to simulate future storm surge under four different sea-level rise scenarios. Data is available for the northern Gulf of Mexico coast on 10 historic storms with sea-level rise, maximum of maximum models with sea-level rise, future stillwater surge maps, and future stillwater inundation.
