Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
This case study describes efforts to prepare for storm surges in Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia. A citizens-based group (The Clean Annapolis River Project) , undertook the Tidal Surge Project in 1998 to identify and gather information on potential threats, including floods during times of extreme tides and storm surges, so the community could put appropriate emergency-response plans and procedures in place. This project led to an important spinoff in 2005, where scientists from Applied Geomatics Research Group set out to develop high-resolution maps that more accurately visualize future flooding scenarios. This demonstrates how communities can reduce the uncertainty of climate change effects and find ways to adapt.
