Sea Level Rise

The elevation is provided by Google's elevation service. The value is interpolated from actual elevation measurements at the four nearest available locations.
The horizontal resolution is the distance between these points. If this property is missing the resolution is not known.

Slide the knob slowly to the right to simulate sea level rise.

Tide Monitor

  • Click on Show Yearly High Tides to show the predicted high tide levels for this year for the closest tide station
  • Or click on Show Recent Water Levels to show the actual versus predicted water levels for the last 3 days for the closest active station

Predicted High Tides

Higher tides increase the likelihood of flooding, as well as its severity if it occurs.

Some locations have diurnal tides — one high tide and one low tide per day. At most locations, there are semidiurnal tides — the tide cycles through a high and low twice each day, with one of the two high tides being higher than the other and one of the two low tides being lower than the other.

The datum selected is MSL, mean sea level.

Recent Water Levels

This data is from the closest active monitoring station of the NOAA Center for Operational Oceanographic Products and Services (CO-OPS). The actual water levels measured every 6 minutes at the station are compared to the prediction for the same time.

The datum selected is MSL, mean sea level.
