Sea-Level Rise Visualization for Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida

This is an interactive map that illustrates the scale of potential flooding in Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida due to projected sea level rise. It is a collaborative project of NOAA Sea Grant Consortium and U.S.G.S. It is a pilot project, so there is some possibility that the resource may not be maintained over time.

Teaching Tips

Educators should use this interactive map in conjunction with the flood frequency predictions on http://gom.usgs.gov/slr/flood.html.

Visualization would need to be accompanied by additional learning resources, but offers students living in Alabama, Mississippi, and Florida the ability to directly check potential sea level rise in their area by address.

Can spark discussions on the demographics of the areas most at risk of flooding on the Gulf Coast.
