Coastal Vulnerability - Should Sea Level Rise Impact on the Population?
I have run the coastal vulnerability model twice for the same area with a sea level rise shape file included and excluded. Due to uneven subsidence across the city there is quite a bit of spatial variation with respect to projected sea level change. While the vulnerability index changes between scenarios, the population affected remains exactly the same. Is this to be expected or I should I re-examine my model set-up?
I saw there was a similar debate about this in March, but it didn't seem that a conclusion was reached.
