Scenarios and risks (Préparatory step)

Flood and erosion risk analysis for Pokemouche

Technical and scientific work done in 2021

Partners: Coastal Zones Research Institute Inc. (Valorēs), Groupe Regenord Inc., The Acadian Peninsula Regional Service Commission, Department of Environment and Local Government, Department of Energy and Resource Development and Université de Moncton, Shippagan campus

Results:

  • High-resolution elevation model based on LiDAR data
  • Sea level rise and storm surge level projections
  • Shoreline recession and advancement projections
  • Database of infrastructure at risk based on various flood and shoreline recession scenarios
