Preparing for Climate Change and Sea Level Rise, a North Hampton Case Study
This presentation will review the results of an innovative hydrologic and hydraulic evaluation of the Philbrick Pond Saltmarsh drainage basin in North Hampton, NH, funded by the Town of North Hampton and an NHDES Coastal Program/NOAA grant. The evaluation addressed predicted flooding severity from extreme rainfall events and from astronomical high tides and ocean storm surges, both at current sea levels and at ranges of projected sea level rise in 2050 and 2100. The presentation will broadly touch upon what we know and don’t yet know about future impacts of sea level rise on infrastructure and public safety planning in various municipalities in the New Hampshire Seacoast.
