Sea Level Rise Vulnerability (Ground) for Kauai at 6ft above MHHW

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

This map shows the extent of flooding of low-lying inland coastal areas around the island of Kauai in the State of Hawaii due to 6 feet (1.829 m) of sea level rise above mean higher high water (MHHW), created by subtracting the NOAA VDATUM MHHW surface from a digital elevation model (DEM). These low-lying areas are not hydrologically connected to the ocean but have the potential for flooding based on their elevation and require more detailed analysis. The resolution of the DEM is 3 meters and was derived from the best available LiDAR data sets known to exist at the time of creation. Water levels are shown as they would appear during the highest high tides (excluding wind-driven tides).Data produced in 2014 by NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM). These data do not consider future changes in coastal geomorphology and natural processes such as erosion, subsidence, or future construction. These data do not specify timing of inundation and are not appropriate for conducting detailed spatial analysis. The entire risk associated with the results and performance of these data is assumed by the user. These data should be used strictly as a planning reference and not for navigation, permitting, or other legal purposes.
