Dykelands Infrastructure in Southeastern New Brunswick

Cover page case study, titled, Adapting to Climate Change: Infrastructure at Risk- Tantramar Marshlands

(2012) (HTML, PDFs).

Recent concerns about rising sea levels, storm surges and heavy rains led to flooding, erosion, and damage to dykes. A series of reports on dykelands infrastructure was produced, along with three case studies:

  • Tantramar Marshlands (PDF, 2.88 MB, 4 pages)
  • Port Elgin (PDF, 1.41 MB, 2 pages)
  • Memramcook (PDF, 1.51 MB, 2 pages)

Land Use and Flooding: Lower Saint John River Project

Cover page case study, titled, Adapting to Climate Change: Inland Flooding- Grand Bay-Westfield

(2012) (HTML, PDFs).

This project used digital elevation modeling, and wet areas mapping (WAM) with Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) to visualize potential flood risks. The information gathered will be used in plans to protect infrastructure from localized flooding. A case study (Grand Bay-Westfield; PDF, 2.23 MB, 4 pages) was produced.
