Patrick, L., W. Solecki, V. Gornitz, P. Orton, and A. Blumberg, 2019: New York City Panel on Climate Change 2019 Report Chapter 5: Mapping Climate Risk. Ann. New York Acad. Sci., 1439, 115-125, doi:10.1111/nyas.14015.

The mapping work of the NPCC is focused on illustrating spatial climate risk information to inform policy makers, stakeholders, and the public of the distribution of climate risk across the landscape of New York City. Flood risk, overall, has been the primary focus of climate risk, based on a variety of approaches including global climate models, semiempirical studies, literature surveys, expert-opinion, and historic tide gauge and more recently, satellite observations of sea level rise. Maps of potential future flood extents are used to visualize coastal flooding extents at the neighborhood scale and to assess the progression of citywide flood risk throughout the 21st century. The NPCC maps were developed as a tool to illustrate our present understanding of the potential futures for which we need to prepare.

This chapter reviews the background, methodology, and limitations of the NPCC3 (and NPCC2) mapping approach and features new citywide maps of mean sea level rise, monthly tidal flooding, and 100-year return period flooding under a high-end scenario of sea level rise. It concludes with a discussion of future mapping efforts and next steps that the NPCC could consider.
