    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.

    DNR Coastal Flood Risk Maps (Opens in a new Window)

    DNR Coastal Flood Maps contain static coastal flood risk maps for different regions in Nova Scotia at a scale of (1: 10 000) scale. Flooding risk is derived from sea level rise and storm surge. These maps are available for download as PDFs. These maps were taken at different points of the different regions along the coastline during 2012.

    Geoscience Atlas (Opens in a new Window)

    The Geoscience Atlas is an interactive map that allows users to select and view layers that include general map layers (e.g. Forest access roads and Contours), coastal monitoring variables (e.g. Coastal Erosion Index and Coastal Sensitivity Index), areas of geochemistry, and geology. Users can toggle and zoom into specific regions in Newfoundland and Labrador. Coastal erosion indices are viewable on map at point resolution.

    Ice Graph (Opens in a new Window)

    IceGraph 2.0 generates ice coverage bar graphs and data tables for a selected region and date range. Data are available from 1968 to present and can be compared between seasons. Specific measures include first year ice, new ice, young ice, and old ice for the current season as well as for the historical monitoring period.
