coastal vulnerability model, What is the threshold value of the erosion index
The coastal vulnerability model calculates a erosion index:
"In addition to mapping the exposure index, the model computes an erosion index ErI as: ErI = (RgeomorphologyRhabitatsRwaveexposure)^1/3"
However, the output erodible shoreline raster only has binary values. Erodible shoreline segments are given a value of 1 and non erodible segments are given a value of 0. These are not the actual ErI values but the user guide does not specify how the model takes the ErI value and classifies a segment as either erodible or not, Is there some sort of threshold ErI value that determines this?
