Coastal Inundation Mapping

NOAA’s Coastal Inundation Mapping is a hands-on computer course. Identifying areas susceptible to flood inundation will help conservation planners and floodplain managers prioritize conservation efforts. This course teaches participants about the different types of coastal inundation, ways to map flood areas in the coastal environment, data and methodology limitations, and practical ways to apply this information to support state and local planning efforts. These efforts can further targeted land conservation in order to mitigate storm and flood impacts.
