Service Description: The North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NACCS) was a two-year initiative of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) to help address coastal storm and flood risk to vulnerable populations, systems, and infrastructure affected by Hurricane Sandy (2012). The NACCS provides a risk management framework – a planning process – designed for use by coastal communities to better understand and manage their short-term and long-term flood risk. The framework is supported by technical products that were developed by the USACE for use in each stage of the process, including robust storm surge modeling for the Northeast U.S. states. This involved application of high-fidelity, coupled, atmospheric and hydrodynamic numerical models to simulate wind waves, and water levels from thousands of historical and synthetic storm events. The result of this effort is a catalog of storm surge, wave heights, and extremal statistics derived from each model run and stored at high resolution stations (“save points”) along the coast, and storm forcing parameters (tracks). This map service consists of 4 layers highlighting some of the available data from the NACCS dataset. A file geodatabase of all the prepared NACCS data is available to download from the NROC website (NROC NACCS), along with more detailed metadata (NACCS Metadata).
