Determination of Future Sea-Level Rise Planning Scenarios for Delaware

Project Contact(s)

The Delaware Geological Survey will review recent scientific literature and assessments of sea-level change in Delaware and identify appropriate scenarios to use for planning purposes throughout the state. This project will also develop new inundation maps along Delaware's coast that correspond to the identified scenarios.

Developing a Weather and Flood Monitoring System for Transportation in Delaware

Project Contact(s)
The Delaware Environmental Observing System (DEOS) and the Delaware Geological Survey (DGS) worked closely with DelDOT to provide initial background technical information and to make recommendations on how such a system may be further developed that could be incorporated into future DelDOT strategic

OFR50 Database of Quaternary Coastal Geochronologic Information for the Atlantic and Pacific Coasts of North America (additional information for sites in Peru and Chile)

Open-File Report 50 presents and describes a database of geochronological information for coastal deposits of the US Atlantic and Pacific coasts, as well as for sites from the Pacific coast of South America. This database represents a synthesis of nearly forty years of study conducted by John F. Wehmiller and students in the Department of Geological Sciences, University of Delaware, as well as many collaborating colleagues.
