Coastal Change Hazards Portal

USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal
The USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal provides direct access to assessments of potential storm-induced and sea-level rise coastal change vulnerabilities, long- and short-term rates of shoreline change, and probabilities of erosion during storm events and due to the effects of long-term sea-level rise.

Robust scientific findings on coastal change processes are a valuable resource for coastal planners and emergency managers to identify vulnerable areas that may be impacted by a variety of coastal change hazards. Through the Coastal Change Hazards Portal, the USGS provides web-based access to coastal hazard information and products that can assist those working to protect resources, identify risk, and help prevent economic losses along the Nation's shorelines. The portal provides direct access to assessments of potential storm-induced and sea-level rise coastal change vulnerabilities, long- and short-term rates of shoreline change, and probabilities of erosion during storm events and due to the effects of long-term sea-level rise.
