Synthetic storm-driven flood-inundation grids for coastal communities in 10 New Jersey counties

Metadata Updated: October 28, 2023

Digital flood-inundation maps for an approximately 295-mile length of the New Jersey coastline and tidewaters through 10-coastal counties stretching from Cumberland County through Bergen County; including Cumberland, Cape May, Atlantic, Ocean, Monmouth, Middlesex, Union, Essex, Hudson, and Bergen counties were created by the U.S Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) and New Jersey Office of Emergency Management (NJOEM). The flood-inundation maps depict extent and depth estimates of coastal flooding corresponding to selected tidal elevations recorded by 25 real-time USGS tide gages located throughout the length of the study area coastline. The flood-inundation maps can be accessed through the U.S Geological Survey Flood Decision Support Toolbox (FDST) Web site (U.S. Geological Survey, 2022).
