Beach SAMP Meeting Announced

A simplified method to map storm inundation with and without sea level rise for varying return periods has been developed and implemented for RI coastal waters.

STORMTOOLS was launched online in draft form December 2014 to provide web-based access to a suite of coastal planning tools (numerical models and others) that allow the Rhode Island user to select a coastal area of interest to access, use and apply high resolution model information.

The impact of variations in coastal topography (beach erosion and nourishment, dredging, etc.) and implementation of potential shoreline protection strategies can be evaluated for varying return period events, with or without sea level rise.

As a part of the Rhode Island Shoreline Change Special Area Management Plan, the RI Coastal Resources Management Council will hold a beach SAMP Stakeholder Meeting on Tuesday, January 20th 2015, at the URI Kingston Campus, Coastal Institute, Weaver Auditorium.

In advance of the January 20th meeting, the Rhode Island CRMC encourages public to test-drive the STORMTOOLS.
