Flooding along our oceans and Great Lakes presents different hazards from those experienced along rivers and smaller lakes. Wave actions and storm surge in coastal areas present additional dangers to structures and to the land itself, hazards not experienced in upland areas. Regulations provide some guidance as to how coastal construction can be made more resistant to flooding, and FEMA provides significant technical guidance to address some additional means to protect structures. But beyond structural considerations we also must acknowledge environmental factors and some of the restrictions they also impose on our plans. This course addresses both physical and regulatory factors to be considered for those living and working in coastal areas.


At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Explain how wave actions affect design and safety considerations in coastal areas
• Understand how coastal zones are defined in the National Flood Insurance Program
• Identify a variety of structural and regulatory approaches to protection against coastal flooding hazards
