Coastal Vulnerability Model; Area of interest
I was wondering about the mechanics of the area of interest in the coastal vulnerability model. If their is land outside the AOI will that land boundary still be used for modeling things like fetch distance. For example, in the attached map the red line represents my AOI. On the south west portion it runs down the middle of a bay, excluding the land to on the southern and western portions of the bay. Will the presence of these portions of land be taking into consideration by the model if I include them in the land polygon shapefile.
