Interactive Tools

With Rowan University new tool, NJFloodAlert, coastal communities and decision makers in New Jersey will have the resources to explore the most up to date and highest resolution flood models. Current tools offer regional scale flood models whereas NJFloodAlert will offer regional AND localized results. Users will be able to view different flooding scenarios produced by historical data of various category hurricanes. It will also provide vulnerability analysis of critical infrastructures and road networks. Once a community or individual has established vulnerabilities, different engineering and green structures will be provided to view to improve their vulnerability. Some coastal New Jersey towns have already started to become more resilient in the face of increased coastal storms. Rowan University is excited to help communities take the next step in planning.
