Tropical Storm Gordon Assessment of Potential Coastal Change Impacts: NHC Advisory 8, 0700 AM CDT TUE SEP 04 2018

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

This dataset defines storm-induced coastal erosion hazards for the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida 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 landfall of Tropical Storm Gordon in September 2018. 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.
