This data contains information on seven variables relating to inundation. This report presents the results of a vulnerability assessment for National Park of American Samoa, highlighting areas that are likely to be most affected by future sea-level rise. Global sea level has risen approximately 18 centimeters ( inches) in the past century (Douglas, ).

      The goal of the assessment was to identify goals within the CCMP that may be vulnerable to climate change impacts such as sea level rise, ocean acidification, changing air and water temperatures, and changes in precipitation patterns. hazard assessments of future sea-level change by creating maps to assist NPS in managing its valuable coastal resources. This report presents the results of a vulnerability assessment for Padre Island National Seashore (PAIS), highlighting areas that are likely to be most affected by future sea-level rise.

        Climate changes in terms of sea level rise and global warming impose different ramifications upon the Red Sea coast of Saudi Arabia, which extends to km and witnesses accelerated urban development. The shoreline is mostly resistant to erosion and inundation by seawater due to the inherent hard nature and the relatively higher relief.   The assessments are currently focused on assets at risk to coastal hazards and sea-level rise within coastal parks. Coastal vulnerability was chosen as a starting point in the development of vulnerability assessments because of digital data availability and a good understanding of the trends in the major climate stressors (e.g., sea level).

Abstract: Coastal systems are characterized by high geophysical and biophysical sensitivity due to their special environment.

The ecosystems along China's coast are especially vulnerable to the accelerated sea-level rise and associated multi-hazards such as storm surges and coastal flooding due to their low-lying topography, highly developed economy, and high-density Cited by: 1.

Assessment of the potential land loss by inundation has been based on empirical approaches using a minimum inundation level of 2 m and a maximum inundation level of 7 m, where scenarios for future sea-level rise range from to mm, with a ‘best estimate’ of by: Two distinct sets of boundary conditions for ASLR (accelerated sea-level rise) case studies are specified by the IPCC: a low value of + m above present mean sea level and a high value of + m by the year The physical boundaries used for this study extend from the 5 m topographic contour to the reef crest.

The 5 m contour is theCited by: 2. It is vulnerable to accelerated sea level rise (SLR) due to its low topography and its high ecological and touristy value. The present study has been carried out with a view to calculate the coastal vulnerability index (CVI) to know the high and low vulnerable areas and area of inundation due to future SLR, and land loss due to coastal by: Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment Collaboration: Sea-Level Marin Adaptation Response Team Marin County Community Development Agency September | Marin County, CA | Cover Photo: Caden at the Beach September Credit: Rendel.

Understanding how sea level rise will affect San Mateo County residents, businesses, and the community services and infrastructure we all rely on is the first and most crucial step in building prepared, healthy and safe communities. The San Mateo County Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment aims to do just that.

Further, global climate change and the threat of accelerated sea level rise have aggravated the already existing high risks of storm surges, “Application of sea level rise vulnerability assessment model to selected coastal areas of Turkey,” Journal of Coastal Research, vol.

1, no. 56, pp. –, Data and Tools The original national coastal vulnerability index (CVI) assessment was motivated by expected accelerated sea-level rise (SLR) and the uncertainty in the response of the coastline to SLR.

Google Scholar. Black Sea. Unfortunately there are no long-term sea-level data along the Turkish Black Sea coast. But Belokopytov and Goryachkin () indicated that the average sea-level rise in the Black Sea is about – mm/year over the last 85 years.

From the beginning ofan average rate of sea-level rise along the northern Black Sea coasts was reported as – mm/year (Shuisky, ). Abstract. Expansion of economic activities, urbanisation, increased resource use and population growth are continuously increasing the vulnerability of the coastal zone.

This vulnerability is now further raised by the threat of climate change and accelerated sea level rise. The potentially severe impacts force policy-makers to also consider long-term planning for climate change and sea level rise.

Transportation infrastructure continues to be at risk to climate change impacts including sea-level rise (SLR) inundation. Past studies have primarily focused on motorized facilities; however, nonmotorized systems also are vulnerable, especially in urban areas where bicycle mobility is essential to commuting and accessibility.

The Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Study for the City of Los Angeles was developed to begin to prepare for accelerated sea level rise and associated storm impacts. Then, two different scenarios of accelerated sea-level rise (ASLR1 — 30 cm/ yrs and ASLR2 — cm/ yrs) were assumed.

After that threats of land loss and the risk of its temporary or partial inundation was analyzed in connection with the assessment of the material and social costs and losses. Vulnerability Assessment In May the Coastal Zone Management Subgroup (CZMS) of IPCC published a elements in the assessment.

Thus accelerated sea level rise (ASLR) should be. Abstract. Udupi coast in Karnataka state, along the west coast of India, selected as a study area, is well known for sandy beaches, aquaculture ponds, lush greenery, temples and m.
