The Southeast Coastal Assessment (SCA), a coordinated and comprehensive coastal shoreline risk and needs assessment, is the first step toward reducing vulnerability and achieving more storm and flood-resistant communities along the tidally-influenced shorelines in the South Atlantic Division area of responsibility. Implications of sea-level rise and climate change are also considered.
Information collected with SCA will provide the foundation for future solutions that can be implemented by federal, state, local or private entities to mitigate risk associated with water-related shoreline hazards.
A collaborative, partner-based approach will be used to collect technical data (socio-economic, engineering, and environmental), garner stakeholder concerns, and
determine data gaps.
