Municipal Vulnerability Assessments – Municipal vulnerability assessments of major municipal infrastructure at one and two foot sea level rise scenarios for 12 coastal cities in Broward County: Dania Beach, Deerfield Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Hallandale Beach, Hillsborough Beach, Hollywood, Lauderdale-By-The-Sea, Lighthouse Point, Oakland Park, Pompano Beach, Sea Ranch Lakes, and Wilton Manors.

National Climate Assessment - The National Climate Assessment summarizes the impacts of climate change on the United States now and in the future. A team of more than 300 experts guided by a 60-member Federal Advisory Committee produced the report, which was extensively reviewed by the public and experts, including Federal agencies and a panel of the National Academy of Sciences.

NOAA nowCOAST - A GIS-based interactive web mapping portal displaying near real-time observations, analyses, tide predictions, model guidance, watches/warnings, and forecasts for the coastal United States, from the National Oceanic Atmosphere Administration (NOAA).

NOAA Sea ​Level Rise and Coastal Flooding ​Impacts Viewer - Provides coastal managers with a preliminary look at sea level rise and coastal flooding impacts. The viewer is a screening-level tool that uses nationally consistent data sets and analyses. Data and maps provided can be used at several scales to help gauge trends and prioritize actions for different scenarios. Select a location and use the slider bar to simulate various sea level rise scenarios (from one to six feet above the average highest tides) and the corresponding areas that would be impacted by flooding.

NOAA Storm Surge Inundation Map - A web map displaying a seamless national map of near worst case storm surge flooding (inundation) scenarios using the National Weather Service (NWS) SLOSH model maximum of maximums (MOMs) product for different hurricane wind categories at a high tide.

Priority Planning Areas for Sea Level Rise Map - Identifies areas near tidal water bodies at increased risk of inundation under a 2 foot sea level rise scenario, projected to occur as soon as 2060.  Areas designated by the County as Adaptation Action Areas of Regional Significance are also now included.  This map is part of the Natural Resource Map Series in the Broward County Land Use Plan, and is used in policy development and during land use review to encourage the use of adaptation and mitigation strategies and make these areas more climate resilient.

Unified Sea Level Rise Projection for Southeast Florida (PDF) – Guidance document for use by the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Compact counties and partners for planning purposes, to aid in understanding of potential vulnerabilities, and to provide a basis for developing risk-informed adaptation strategies for the region.
