NOAA and NASA Coastal Flooding Innovation Challenge

Coastal communities are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the risk of damage from coastal inundation. We only have to remember the recent impact of Hurricane Sandy on communities in the northeast to see the potential damage that a single storm can cause. This featured challenge of the International Space Apps Challenge is to create tools and provide information so communities can prepare for coastal floods. Through the use of data, visualizations, and simulations, you can help people understand their exposure to coastal hazards and their increased vulnerability due to population increase and sea level rise. Visit the resources tab to find datasets, web services, and tools that will help you compete in the Space Apps Challenge on the coastal impacts of climate change.
