This electronic tool provides estimated projections of the potential impact of future sea-level rise and storm surge on inundation and coastal flooding that could occur in portions of New York State. The estimated projections of future sea level are based on the best available scientific information but have large uncertainties and are subject to change as the state of the science evolves. The values do not reflect the likelihood of changes in climate or sea level.
This tool is intended to be used only as a screening-level tool to consider potential policy responses to sea-level rise and coastal flooding. It is not intended for, nor suitable for, navigation, site-specific analysis for permitting or other legal purposes.
