Guidelines and Specifications for Wave Elevation Determination and V Zone Mapping

Cover photo for the document: Guidelines and Specifications for Wave Elevation Determination and V Zone Mapping
The Federal Emergency Management Agency compiled these Guidelines to specify technical policies and procedures to be employed in the preparation of coastal Flood Insurance Studies (FISs) and restudies. These Guidelines provided unified instructions on the application of the methodologies used to determine the coastal flooding elevation hazards set forth in the FIS, and on the delineation of the flood elevations and hazards on the Flood Insurance Rate Map. The present Guidelines were not applicable to studies on Great Lakes coasts because different analysis procedures and computer models are applied there. These Guidelines were subsequently included in and superseded by Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners in February 2002.
