USGS Study Shows Many Coastal Wetlands Likely to Disappear this Century

Ever wonder what the differences are between FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) and storm surge maps published through Hurricane Evacuation Studies (HESs)? The Silver Jackets partners in Region III, including USACE, FEMA, and NOAA, developed a white paper that addresses this common question.

http://www.iwr.usace.army.mil/nhp/index.cfm?pageid=123&navid=41

The paper is aimed at local, state, and federal government staff who work with one or both of these map products. Note that while the paper is somewhat specific to work being done within FEMA Region III, the description of the differences between the two products is relevant broadly along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
