New USGS Tool Makes Coastal Viewing a Day at the Beach

from U.S. Geological Survey

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has created an online tool that allows anyone to interactively "see" past, present and future coastal hazards. Called the USGS Coastal Change Hazards Portal, the tool can help the decision-making process when it comes to emergency preparedness, ecosystem restoration, and where and how to develop coastal areas. The tool runs on web browsers, tablets, and smartphones. "Our nation's coastlines are constantly changing landscapes that pose unique management challenges," said Suzette Kimball, USGS acting director. "This new USGS portal is truly one-of-a-kind, providing a credible foundation for making decisions to protect resources, reduce risk, and prevent economic losses." more
