Publication | Defining Flood Zone Transitions in Low‐Gradient Coastal Regions

M.V. Bilskie & S.C. Hagen (2018). “Defining Flood Zone Transitions in Low-Gradient Coastal Regions.” Geophysical Research Letters, In Press, doi: 10.1002/2018GL077524. Abstract Worldwide, coastal, and deltaic communities are susceptible to flooding from the individual and combined effects of rainfall excess and astronomic tide and storm surge inundation. Such flood events are a present (and future) cause of concern …
