The proposal team will enhance a prototype DSS tool that will improve collaboration and decision making along the Gulf Coast as identified in the Governor’s Action Plan. This Federal, State, University and Private sector partnership will become a model for the entire GOMA to implement for improved decision making with the accuracy, detail, and timeliness required to offer guidance to emergency managers and build an informed Gulf community when it comes to understanding and dealing with storm impacts, sea level rise and subsidence. This project will result in immediate benefits to the entire Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) and addresses the long-term partnership goal specified under Wetland and Coastal Conservation and Restoration to support Gulf recovery and build resilience to future hurricanes. Specifically: R-2: Increase the safety of Gulf communities by better understanding the risks of localized sea level rise, storm surge and subsidence. A key goal of the GOMA is to develop a prototype decision-support tool that allows Gulf resource managers to integrate critical storm surge, localized sea level rise and subsidence information for at least one pilot area on the Gulf Coast. The proposal team will work closely with Federal partners that have already established Envirocast® VisionTM TouchTables (EVTTs), such as the NWS Southern Region HQ, FEMA Region VI HQ and NOAA’s Hurricane Research Division (HRD) and the NWS National Hurricane Center (NHC) to enhance the flow of critical storm surge model output and new and innovative products being developed for improved decision making capabilities including NASA earth science research results and NOAA research and operational products. The team also includes innovative partners such as UT Austin and NASA SPoRT that will turn around rapid NASA and NASA/NOAA merged products for immediate use by the prototype decision-support tool.
