With thousands of miles of tidal coastline, and the threats of storm surge and sea level rise, it’s important for coastal communities to understand how weather and sea level contributes to coastal flooding, erosion, and damage to their shores and coastal infrastructure. This project supports the collection of high water level data and public perspectives on flooding in their community. This data can be used to support coastal resilience, for example, town planners use data to identify possible climate actions and the National Weather Service to send out flood alerts.
