TOOL NAME Agency/Institution Description Type of tool Model name Inundation levels Future scenarios Topographic baseline Geographic scope in Gulf of Mexico
Sea Level Affecting Marshes   Model (SLAMM) EPA created it but code maintained by Warren Pinnacle Consulting Marsh and other coastal habitat migration spatial offline model Offline SLAMM Any specified Any time slice specified Lidar or other microtopography digital elevation model Anywhere
Sea Level Rise and Coastal Flooding Impacts Viewer Coastal Services Center of NOAA This online viewer provides a preliminary look at sea level rise and coastal flooding impacts Online 6 ft max. Lidar Resolution: Point density is 0.1 to 8pts/meterAccuracy: Elevations at 95 percent confidence   typically better than 30 centimeters (cm) Northern Gulf coast except Louisiana
CanVis Coastal Services Center of NOAA and USDA Visualization program used to “see”   potential impacts from coastal development or sea level rise Offline Anywhere
Sea Levels Online Tides and Currents NOAA The mean sea level (MSL) trends measured by a network of tide gauges for a minimum of 30 years that are presented on this web site are local relative MSL trends as opposed to the global sea level trend. Tide gauge measurements are made with respect to a local fixed reference level on land Online Trends Global, where stations   available
Sea Level Rise Visualization USGS and Sea Grant-NOAA Online viewer that illustrate the scale of potential flooding, not the exact location, and does not account for erosion, subsidence, or future construction. Water levels are shown as they would appear during an average high tide. Online 6 ft max. Lidar Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida
Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model Visualization (SLAMMView) Image Matters and USGS Web online application that provides tools for improved understanding of results from research   projects that employ the Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM) Online SLAMM Any specified Any time slice specified Several project sites along the Gulf coast (>70 project sites in the US)
Texas Coastal Ocean Observation Network (TCOON) Conrad Blucher Institute at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi Online map tool to access water level and meteorological stations with real time Online Stations along Texas coast
Surging Seas Climate Central Online viewer of areas below different amounts of sea level rise and flooding, down to neighborhood scale, matched with area timelines of risk. The tool also provides statistics of population, homes and land affected by city, county and state, plus links to factsheets, data downloads and action plans Online 10 ft max. 2100 max. NED-USGS Anywhere in lower US coast
SLR Web Map Viewer Sarasota Bay Estuary Program and Mote Marine Laboratory Potential long term impact of rising sea levels along the coast of Sarasota and Manatee Counties Online 6 ft max. Lidar Sarasota and Manatee Counties, Florida
Coastal Resilience: Gulf of Mexico The Nature Conservancy Online viewer of coastal resilience data along the Gulf including SLAMM and storm surge data Online SLAMM 1 m 2100 max. Lidar Project sites in: TX, MS,   AL, FL
Sea Level Rise: Research and   Scenarios for a Changing Coast TNC and GOMA Online portal that provides a series of technical tools and future scenarios data from analysis to support the practical understanding of impacts to the environment and to human coastal communities that may result from SLR and related climate hazards, including storm surge and coastal resilience Online SLAMM 0.39 to 2 meters 2100 max. Lidar Galveston Bay, Jefferson County, TX;Grand Bay   NERR, MS; Choctawhatchee and St Andrews Bays, FL.
Tampa Bay Sea Level Rise Scenarios Tampa Bay Estuary Program This mapping tool illustrates the scale of potential sea level rise and transitions of critical coastal habitats that may occur in the Tampa Bay area within this century due to current trends in climate change Online SLAMM 0.5 to 2 meters 2100 only Lidar Tampa Bay area in Florida
Coastal Inundation Toolkit Coastal Services Center NOAA These tools help better understand and address the inundation issues facing coastal communities Online Relevant anywhere along the US coast
