Coastal vulnerability - Sea Level Rise
I've modeled two scenarios for SLR in my study area, but I'm not sure about the CVI results... I've read the thread by irondaffodill (title: Population Vulnerability Index) that Jess_Silver gave lots of input, and it was great help to start with.
I'm working on a small Brazilian coastal area, which would not experience differences in RSLR across the region.
SLR are estimated to be between 2 and 5 mm/year, so I created three scenarios: no rise, 2 mm rise, and 5 mm rise.
My "problem" is that the Exposure Index of the 2 mm and 5 mm scenarios seem identical (and the "no rise" scenario isn't that different either).
Could there have been some problem with the data used? Or is this result acceptable?
