Toxic Tides

This project will characterize the threats posed by sea level rise (SLR) and flooding of hazardous sites to socially disadvantaged populations through the development, integration and spatial analysis of: high-resolution maps of land areas at risk of inundation; locational information on hazardous sites and presence of toxic materials they store, use, or emit; and social vulnerability indicators derived from housing and census data. We are information on hazardous sites and indicators of social disadvantage into a searchable bilingual (English/Spanish) online mapping interface that provides customizable visualizations and data about SLR projections.
