In Georgia, local, state, federal government agencies, non-profit organizations, and private citizens are assessing where people and infrastructure within coastal communities are vulnerable to coastal hazards and sea level rise and applying natural solutions such as land protection, shoreline and wetland restoration and flood risk decision support tools.
The Coastline Change: Future Scenarios app allows users to explore how climate change combined with management actions over a 50-year time frame may affect the rates of shoreline change along a simulated Virginia barrier island system.
The Risk Explorer is organized by state and permits users to easily visualize coastal hazards exposure, social vulnerability and overall risk.
The Future Habitat app categorizes various tidal marsh advancement scenarios from spatial model outputs to inform users of the combined impacts of sea level change, physical barriers to wetland movement, and rates of land accretion or sediment accumulation.
Flooding is increasing along the coast and certain rivers. Use this app to view areas affected today and in the future due to increased sea level rise, surge from storms and hurricanes, and inland flooding.
This app is being used in all Coastal Resilience geographies.
