Description

The Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS) is a dynamic modeling approach developed by the United States Geological Survey that allows more detailed predictions of coastal flooding due to both future sea level rise and storms integrated with long-term coastal evolution. CoSMoS models are scaled down to local flood projections for use in community-level coastal planning and decision-making and are currently available for the north-central coast and southern California. Modeling is underway for the central coast, to be completed in summer 2018. All modeling results are available as GIS shapefiles, with accompanying metadata, at USGS ScienceBase-Catalog or through the Our Coast, Our Future (OCOF) flood mapper.
