Southwest Florida is facing increasing coastal inundation risk due to sea level rise, low land elevation, increasing population, and frequent tropical cyclones which are becoming stronger, slower, and wetter in the 21st century. To develop adaptation plans, local governments and natural system managers seek science-based decision support tools that are developed with best available and actionable science. Funded by the NOAA Restore Science Program since
2017, a multi-institution team has been developing the ACUNE web tool to inform local governments and natural system managers of the coastal inundation vulnerability in the 21st century.
