Scotian Shelf

The goal of the Shelf component is to forecast flooding and flooding risk along the eastern seaboard of Canada. 

A storm surge forecast model has been developed at Dalhousie (DalCoast) and is run operationally by Environment Canada. As part of this project, a tide gauge has been installed at Charlottetown to provide data to test the forecasts of the surge model.

The links to the left, under "Flooding Forecast", provide access to movies of the storm surge forecasts and the comparisons of the forecasts against the independent sea level observations.
