NY/NJ Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island 2016 NATURAL_HAZARD

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This feature class resides within the SOCECON Feature Data Set of the New York/New Jersey Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island 2016 ESI geodatabase. It contains vector polygons representing Natural Hazard human-use resource data for the study area. The study area includes the Hudson River, Raritan Bay, and adjacent tidal waters of metro New York and New Jersey; nearshore marine and tidal waters of New York eastward to Montauk Point; nearshore marine and tidal waters of New Jersey southward to northern Barnegat Bay; and fresh waters and land areas to 5 nautical miles inland.

The vector polygons represent predicted flood inundation in the event of a Category 1, 2, 3, or 4 storm. For each storm category, the level of flooding is binned into anticipated depth of flood waters: 3 feet, > 6, and > 9 feet. These are modeled data, based on the National Hurricane Center’s Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) model (https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/surge/slosh.php). Raster model data, prepared in 2015, was converted to vector polygons for the purpose of the ESI. These data should be used for planning purposes only.

The ArcGIS feature class (NATURAL HAZARD POLYS) has 2 associated attribute tables, considered as Entities or "Child Items" in this metadata record. Location-specific Type and Source information are stored in these related data tables, SOC_DAT and SOURCES (described below), which are stand-alone tables within the Geodatabase.

This data set is a portion of the ESI data for the NY/NJ Metro Area, Hudson River, and South Long Island region. As a whole, the ESI data characterize the marine and coastal environments and wildlife by their sensitivity to spilled oil, and include information for three main components: shoreline habitats, sensitive biological resources, and human-use resources.

Additional human-use information is provided in other feature class themes within the SOCECON Feature Data Set, including NAVIGATION/MARINE (POINTS, LINES, and POLYGONS), PARKS/MANAGED AREA (POINTS and POLYGONS), POLITICAL/JURISDICTIONAL (POINTS and POLYGONS), RESOURCE MANAGEMENT (POINTS and POLYGONS), and SOCECON (POINTS AND POLYGONS).

Access Constraints Access Constraints: None | Use Constraints: DO NOT USE MAPS FOR NAVIGATIONAL PURPOSES. Management boundaries are not to be considered legal boundaries. Edges may have been altered for cartographic processes. Note that the ESI database should not be used to the exclusion of other pertinent data or information held by state or federal agencies or other organizations. Likewise, information contained in the database cannot be used in place of consultations with environmental, natural resource, and cultural resource agencies, or in place of field surveys. Recognize that the information contained in the ESI database represents known concentration areas or occurrences of natural, cultural, and human-use resources, but does not necessarily represent the full distribution or range of each species or resource. This is particularly important to recognize when considering potential impacts to protected resources, such as endangered species, wetlands, etc. Besides the above warnings, there are no use constraints on these data. Acknowledgment of the originators, publishers, contributors, and sources listed would be appreciated in products derived from these data. | Distribution Liability: Although these data have been processed and used successfully on a computer system at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), no warranty, expressed or implied, is made by NOAA regarding the utility of the data on any other system, nor shall the act of distribution constitute any such warranty. NOAA warrants the delivery of this product in computer-readable format. If problems are encountered in downloading the ESI data or with file corruption, contact NOAA (see Distributor). These data represent a snapshot in time and temporal changes may have occurred. The data are not intended to include all biological or human-use resources present in an area; they focus on species and resources particularly sensitive to oiling. In the event of a spill, they should be used for a first assessment only. The data providers are the experts with regard to individual resources. They should be contacted to confirm if more current data exist or if in-depth information is needed about a particular resource.
