The Coastal Science Navigator was created in response to stakeholder feedback from a series of listening sessions in 2020-2021. During these conversations, a central source for USGS coastal science and information was identified as a common need across user groups.

The Coastal Science Navigator is intended to help users discover USGS Coastal Change Hazards information, products, and tools relevant to their scientific or decision-making needs. Users can search through categories, locations, and product type related to 55 different projects and studies:

  • Guided Search
  • Filter Search

The Coastal Science Navigator is a product of State of Our Nation's Coast, a project supported by the USGS Coastal and Marine Hazards and Resources Program. Comprised of a collaborative team of scientists, technical staff, developers, designers, and stakeholder engagement specialists, the project seeks to create tools and resources to improve access to USGS Coastal Change Hazards science.
