Data Description and Usage

This dataset shows various possible different sea level rises (1, 2, 3, 5 and 7 feet), above the 1% annual exceedance probability levels above MHHW along the Connecticut coastline and the adjacent inland. The modeled tidal water reference surface has been created using VDatum (NOAA) and LiDAR topographic data. High probability areas of inundation are color shaded as well as low-lying areas, which are all shaded yellow. However, due to the complexity of inland areas some of these regions need further evaluation. This dataset has been made to study the Flood Risk Assessment in Connecticut, an integral part of the Connecticut Connections Coastal Resilience Plan.
