Alaska Coastal Hazards Program

The Alaska Division of Geological & Geophysical Surveys helps build local capacity to monitor flooding and erosion in Alaska communities. This site has the most recent updates for monitoring activities in low bandwidth community-specific pages.

Two particular websites that may be helpful for communities interested in monitoring activities include a recent report and community-specific maps of shoreline change and the Alaska Water Level Watch program.

The DGGS Shoreline Change at Alaska Coastal Communities includes maps of historical erosion and accretion rates for several riverine and coastal communities in Alaska.  The report and community-specific maps are available here.

The Alaska Water Level Watch is a collaborative group working to improve the quality, coverage, and accessibility to water level observations in Alaska’s coastal zone. For information about water level monitoring in coastal communities in Alaska see the website here.
