This page includes sea-level rise viewers and modeling related to sea-level rise trends and related hazards.

Sea-Level Rise Viewers, Trends, and Resources

Sea Level Rise Viewer

  • Developed By: NOAA Office for Coastal Management
  • Description: Recently updated to include regional SLR scenarios! Explore how the shoreline is likely to change with increasing amounts of sea level rise. This tool lets you visualize the potential impacts of coastal flooding so you can prioritize actions for different scenarios.

Sea-Level Change Curve Calculator

  • Developed By: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
  • Description: Get estimated rates of sea level change for any location along the U.S. ocean coast by selecting the closest NOAA tide gauge to the location of interest.

Sea Level Trends

  • Developed By: NOAA Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services
  • Description: View regional trends showing the direction and magnitude of sea level change at 240 sites around the world. Click any site for a detailed time-series graph and the long-term linear trend.

Sea-level rise modeling handbook: Resource guide for coastal land managers, engineers, and scientists

  • Developed By: USGS National Wetlands Research Center and DOI Southeast Climate Science Center
  • Description: Contains information on the processes of sea-level rise, information on different sea-level rise models and tools, and a list of existing tools and models.

SLR-Related Coastal Hazards

Coastal Change Hazards Portal

  • Developed By: U.S. Geological Survey
  • Description: Policy makers, emergency managers, and citizen’s access information on hazards associated with severe storms, shoreline erosion, and sea level rise. This browser-based “mashup” provides access to historical data, publications, satellite imagery, maps, and more.

Coastal Dynamics of Sea Level Rise (CDSLR) Story Maps

  • Developed By: NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, EESLR Program, LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency
  • Description: Advances beyond bathtub modeling, to demonstrate the dynamic changes in coastlines due to sea level rise and how that will change storm surge in the future. The storm maps highlight future surge and future annual chance still water flood maps for 100 year and 500 year intervals for four different sea-level rise scenarios.

NGOM3

  • Developed By: NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency
  • Description: Storm surge modeling integrating dynamic coastal processes and sea-level rise.

Mapping Interface for Research Applications (MIRA)

  • Developed By: University of Central Florida and LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency
  • Description: The MIRA tool is an interactive map that explores the effects of sea level rise on the Mississippi coast. Using Hurricane Katrina as a backdrop, it simulates what could have happened if I struck in the year 2050 when sea level was 6, 12, or 18 inches higher that it was in 2005.  Additionally, the tool goes back in time to 1960 when sea level was 5 inches lower.
