    AGRG Coastal Storm Surge Interactive Map (Opens in a new Window)

    The Applied Geomatics Research Group (AGRG) Coastal Storm Surge Interactive Map is a web-based Emergency Coastal Flooding Decision Support System that presents coastal flood risk from storm surges and long term sea-level rise in the Maritimes. Predicted storm surges, predicted total water level, and predicted tide are available as layers. Existing tide stations, critical facilities, surface elevation, bare earth elevation, and tide and storm surge are also viewable as layers.

    Canadian Extreme Water Level Adaptation Tool (CAN-EWLAT) (Opens in a new Window)

    Canadian Extreme Water Level Adaptation Tool (CAN-EWLAT) is a science-based planning tool for the adaptation of coastal infrastructure related to future water-level extremes and changes in wave climates. This tool allows users to locate tide gauges and small craft harbours across Canada. For each geographical location, data including vertical allowance, sea level rise, mean water level, and wave climate can be visualized and downloaded.
