Sea Level Rise
I am running the Coastal Vulnerability model and I have only 1 station for the whole coastline I want to analyse. I checked that we need to provide a shapefile with a TREND field representing the yearly sea level rise in mm. I used the data available in the http://www.psmsl.org/ to create a linear regression to estimate the rate of sea level variation. I come up with a 3.5 mm/year whcih seems to be in line with what I have read.
My question is: how do we make different scenarios of SLR for our model? Is it enough to multiply this rate value by, for instances, the future scenarios of global rise for 2100 predicted by the National Climate Assessment (0.2, 0.5, 1.2, 2 m)?
Thanks in advance
