How to Use the SLAMM Viewers (Manuals)

Basic Viewer—2055

SLAMMManual_2055

Click Here to read a manual on  how to use the SLAMM basic viewer for 2055.

The manual describes how application is designed to allow users to view and compare the following four SLAMM data sets for the coastal areas of Long Island Sound in both Connecticut and New York.

  • Land cover changes prior to any future sea-level rise predictions (i.e., initial conditions circa 2010).
  • Land cover changes from a “low-end” prediction of sea-level rise by 2055.
  • Land cover changes from a “high-end” prediction of sea-level rise by 2055.
  • The likelihood of the existence of coastal marsh by 2055.

Section 5 of the manual includes an example of four  zoomed-in views of an area in Old Lyme, CT, in 2055, and how the four map views can be used in unison to explore and examine the effects SLR may have with respect to marsh composition and extent.

The manual describes how the application is designed to allow users to view and compare the following four SLAMM data sets for the coastal areas of Long Island Sound in both Connecticut and New York.

  • Land cover changes prior to any future sea-level rise predictions (i.e., initial conditions circa 2010).
  •  Land cover changes from a “low-end” prediction of sea-level rise by 2100.
  •  Land cover changes from a “high-end” prediction of sea-level rise by 2100.
  • The likelihood of the existence of coastal marsh by 2100.

Section 5 of the manual includes an example of four  zoomed-in views of an area in Old Lyme, CT, in 2100, and how the four map views can be used in unison to explore and examine the effects SLR may have with respect to marsh composition and extent.

click here to Read a manual on How to use the SLAMM for four time periods.

The manual describes how the application is designed to allow users to view and compare the following four SLAMM data sets for the coastal areas of Long Island Sound in both  Connecticut and New York.

  • Land cover changes prior to any future sea-level rise predictions (i.e., initial conditions circa 2010).
  • Land cover changes from a “low-end” prediction of sea-level rise by 2100.
  • The likelihood of coastal marsh by 2025, 2055, 2085, and 2100.

Section 5 of the manual includes an example of how the viewer can be used to  examine the worst predicted case of SLR by 2085 and its effect on the likelihood of coastal marsh.
