Coastal communities in South Florida began monitoring tide conditions and sea levels in July 2016 using a system that transmits real-time data on sea level, tides, and water temperature to local hydrodynamic models.

Using these intracoastal datasets, local governments are working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to model coastal flood zones and improve resilience planning.
