Research Tools: NOAA Releases Coastal Inundation Dashboard, New Resource Provides Water Level Data From Over 200 Coastal Stations to Your Desktop
To help people prepare for and manage the effects of coastal flooding, NOAA has brought together data from its over 200 coastal water level stations into one easy-to-use web tool.
The Coastal Inundation Dashboard brings together real-time water level information, 48-hour forecasts of water levels, storm surge and historic flooding information into one online tool to help decision makers as well as coastal residents understand both short-term risks such as an approaching hurricane or nor’easter, as well as longer-term risks like high tide flooding and sea level rise. Boaters and fishermen can even use the tool to get their latest local tides.
The Coastal Inundation Dashboard and QuickLook are brought to you by NOAA’s Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services.
