Detailed Integrated Tool to Estimate Potential Future Sea-Levels
For Consideration in Sandy Recovery — USACE SCENARIOS

New Jersey Counties: Atlantic, Bergen, Burlington, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union

This tool is intended to help the public understand, in a general way, some potential future vulnerabilities to changing sea levels, waves, tides, and surges in the New York and New Jersey areas.

For additional information, you can view the map provided by NOAA to see the sea-level scenarios, and compare to the USACE scenarios below based on the USACE published guidance (pdf). You can also view the NOAA and NPCC scenarios.
