Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program interactive maps, data visualizations, and data analysis products.
The USGS SPCMSC Geologic Core and Sample Database Geonarrative
The U.S. Geological Survey St. Petersburg Coastal and Marine Science Center (USGS SPCMSC) Geologic Core and Sample Database was established to catalog and preserve geologic materials and their metadata. This geonarrative explores the history of geologic sampling at the USGS SPCMSC, why and how this database was developed, and where the database can be accessed.
Hurricane Florence Numerical Modeling
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has partnered with North Carolina State University (NCSU), Louisiana State University (LSU) and University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) to investigate hurricane-induced compound flooding and sediment dispersal using coupled hydrology and ocean models.
A Century of Change in Grand Bay, Mississippi and Alabama
The Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR) in southern Mississippi was established to provide recreational and educational opportunities along with facilitating science-based coastal management; therefore, Grand Bay is the subject of numerous short and long-term environmental studies. The reserve is an important location for research and conservation.
Los Cambios Costeros en Puerto Rico
El Servicio Geológico de los Estados Unidos (USGS, por sus siglas en inglés) ha desarrollado una geonarrativa en español e inglés sobre los cambios en la costa de Puerto Rico que explica las tendencias históricas de la línea costera de la isla, los impactos de los huracanes en la costa y las posibles soluciones para proteger a las comunidades y mitigar los peligros costeros.
Shoreline Changes in Puerto Rico
The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has developed a Spanish and English geonarrative that displays shoreline changes in Puerto Rico and covers topics on the island’s historical shoreline trends, hurricane impacts on the coast, and possible solutions that could help protect communities and mitigate coastal hazards.
EXPRESS Data Viewer
Expanding Pacific Research and Exploration of Submerged Systems (EXPRESS) is an inter-agency federal and nonfederal collaborative research effort aimed at gathering new data of the deep ocean, continental shelf and slope offshore of California, Oregon and Washington. This expansive partnership includes three federal agencies and additional principle investigators from leading research institutes.

This collection contains estuarine shorelines and rates of change for Barnegat and Great Bay, New Jersey.
Breton Island, LA Estuarine Shorelines and Rates of Change
This collection contains estuarine shorelines and rates of change for Breton Island, Louisiana.
Grand Bay, MS/AL Estuarine Shorelines and Rates of Change
This collection contains estuarine shorelines and rates of change for Grand Bay, Mississippi/Alabama (1848-2017).
Deciphering Nature's Seismograph: How Sediments Record Past Earthquakes and Inform Future Hazard Assessments
People have been recording seismic activity for centuries. To assemble a detailed earthquake history of an area and understand how faults may behave in the future, however, scientists need to go further back in time—from several hundred to many thousands of years ago.
Our Coast Our Future
Our Coast, Our Future is a partnership between Point Blue Conservation Science and USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center, and was collaboratively developed with many local, state, and federal stakeholders. It is the platform for data visualization, synthesis, and download of all output products from the USGS Coastal Storm Modeling System (CoSMoS).
Gas Hydrate in Nature
This geonarrative combines the text and imagery of USGS Fact Sheet 3080 with additional supporting imagery. Except for headings used to organize the text in the geonarrative and an updated name for the coastal and marine program at the USGS, the text is exactly the same as USGS Fact Sheet 3080, with an updated timeline diagram.
