SO503 Spring 2012

Coastal Flooding

 

Go to http://www.usna.edu/Users/oceano/pguth/website/storm_surge/flooding.htm.  Look a the KML file there in Google Earth, and determine the water level at which you think the USNA columbarium starts to flood.  Insure that you include the vertical datum for this elevation.

The NOAA tide site (links used in 2012 are broken) shows the relationship between vertical datums (including NAVD88 and MLLW) for the Annapolis tide gauge.
