Extratropical Storm Jan2016 Assessment of Potential Coastal Change Impacts: 1200 PM EST FRI JAN 22 2016

Metadata Updated: December 11, 2019

This dataset defines storm-induced coastal erosion hazards for the Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York coastline. The analysis was based on a storm-impact scaling model that used observations of beach morphology combined with sophisticated hydrodynamic models to predict how the coast would respond to the direct impact of the Extratropical Storm in January 2016. Storm-induced water levels, due to both surge and waves, were compared to beach and dune elevations to determine the probabilities of the three types of coastal change: collision (dune erosion), overwash, and inundation. All hydrodynamic and morphologic variables are included in this dataset.
