Description:
Abstract:
These datasets contain information on the probabilities of nor'easter-induced erosion (collision, overwash and inundation) for each 1-km section of the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast, from North Carolina through Maine, for class 1-3 nor'easters. The analysis is based on a storm-impact scaling model that uses observations of beach morphology combined with sophisticated hydrodynamic models to predict how the coast will respond to the direct impact of class 1-3 nor'easters. Nor'easter-induced water levels, due to both surge and waves, are compared to beach and dune elevations to determine the probabilities of three types of coastal change: collision (dune erosion), overwash, and inundation. Data on dune morphology (dune crest and toe elevation) and hydrodynamics (storm surge, wave setup and runup) are also included in this dataset. As new beach morphology observations and storm predictions become available, this analysis will be updated to describe how coastal vulnerability to storms will vary in the future. The data presented here include dune morphology observations, as derived from lidar surveys taken between May and July 2010 and in November 2012.
Purpose:
To provide data on the probability of nor'easter-induced coastal erosion hazards for the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast.

Data_Set_Credit:
The predicted elevations of storm surge for class 1-3 nor'easters were extracted from the National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP) Climate Forecast System Reanalysis (CFSR) model, which was completed over a 31-year period from 1979 to 2009 and was designed and executed as a global, high resolution, coupled atmosphere-ocean-land surface-sea ice system to provide the best estimate of the state of these coupled domains over this period. The predicted elevations of high tide were extracted from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) tide gages at six long-running gage locations along the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast. Wave runup and setup conditions were generated using the NOAA WaveWatch III (NWW3) model results using winds from the CFSR. The wave runup and setup conditions were complemented by measured data from six long-runnng NOAA National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) wave buoys in shallow water along the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast.

Data_Quality_Information:
Logical_Consistency_Report:
No additional checks for consistency were performed on this data.
Completeness_Report:
These data include dune morphology, and nor'easter hydrodynamic data used to generate probabilities of nor'easter-induced erosion. Elevation data from lidar surveys are not included. Measurements are collected approximately every 10-meters and summarized to 1-km segments.

Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report: Horizontal accuracy was not estimated.
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy:
Vertical_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
Vertical accuracy for hydrodynamic measurements (surge, setup, and runup) is dependent on input data. CFSR-modeled surge elevations were compared to six long-running NOAA tide gages in shallow water along the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast and surge elevations were assimilated based on this comparison for class 1-3 nor'easters. Modeled wave heights and wave periods were compared to observed wave heights at six long-running NOAA NDBC buoys located in shallow water along the Mid- and Northeast Atlantic coast and simulated wave heights were representative of maximum possible wave heights for each nor'easter category. No other accuracy checks were performed. Vertical accuracy for dune morphology (dune crest and toe elevation) data is dependent on the positional accuracy of the lidar data. Estimated accuracy of lidar surveys is +/- 15 centimeters. However, vertical accuracies may vary based on the type of terrain (for example, inaccuracies may increase as slope increases or with the presence of extremely dense vegetation) and the accuracy of the GPS and aircraft-attitude measurements.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
For dune morphology data: Elevation data from lidar surveys were interpolated in MATLAB (R2014a) to a gridded domain that was rotated parallel to the shoreline and had a resolution of 10 m in the long-shore direction and 2.5 m in the cross-shore direction. The interpolation method applies spatial filtering with a Hanning window that is twice as wide as the grid resolution. Dune morphology data are extracted from the elevation grid in MATLAB. Dune morphology data are then summarized to 1 km sections. Sections with greater than 75 percent of data missing are flagged with the invalid number of -999. The 1-kilometer smoothed dune crest, toe and root mean square (RMS) error for each were written to line shapefiles using Matlab's shapewrite.m script.

The wave height and period for calculating wave runup and setup come from the NWW3 model. Hydrodynamic parameters were calculated in MATLAB and exported into ArcGIS format.

Process_Description:
Probabilities of coastal erosion hazards are based on estimating the likelihood that the beach system will experience erosion and deposition patterns consistent with collision, overwash, or inundation regimes. The regimes are calculated by using values of dune morphology and mean and extreme water levels for each 1 km section, such that probability of collision occurs when extreme water levels reach the dune toe; overwash when extreme water levels reach the dune crest; and inundation when mean water levels reach the dune crest. Probabilities were calculated in MATLAB and exported in ArcGIS format.
