Guidance for Coastal Flood Hazard Analyses and Mapping in Sheltered Waters - Technical Memorandum
This memorandum provides supplemental guidance to Mapping Partners for coastal flood hazard analyses (primarily the 1-percent-annual-chance event) in sheltered water areas. It updates and extends guidance contained in the existing guidelines for the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and Pacific Coasts (FEMA, 2003; FEMA, 2004; FEMA, 2007). ‘Sheltered waters’ in this document refers to bays, sounds, estuaries, fjords, and other bodies of water that are hydraulically connected to open coast waters during flood conditions.
