The Western Port Local Coastal Hazard Assessment (LCHA) provides information on the extent of coastal hazards and their physical impacts for the Western Port coastal environment. Information has been collected on inundation hazards (storm surge and catchment inflows) using modelling for different sea level rise scenarios.
This data represents the extent of storm tide inundation for the 1% Average Exceedance Probability (AEP) storm tide with the +0.2 m sea level rise scenario. (based on hydrodynamic modelling).

Details of the assumptions made in the derivation of this information can be found in project reports on the Our Coast website: http://www.ourcoast.org.au/cb_pages/resources.php. Users of this information should read these project reports to understand the limitations of the data.
