Title: Frequency of Flooding Along U.S. Coasts, 2010-2016 Versus 1950-1959
Abstract: This map shows the average number of days per year in which coastal waters rose above the local threshold for minor flooding at 27 sites along the U.S. coast. Each small bar graph compares the first decade of widespread measurements (the 1950s in orange) with the most recent decade (the 2010s in purple).

Purpose: These data were created to be used for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Climate Change Indicators in the United States.
