Low lying coastal areas have always dealt with the threat of water, but as climate change raises sea levels and strengthens storms, the threat may overcome old defenses.  Using elevation data, you can create simple models of storm surges and predict which areas will flood the next time a hurricane hits. This lesson focuses on New York City as a study area, but the same workflow can be repeated for any coastal area.
