Explore impact scenarios of sea-level rise - Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM) PDF Print E-mail
Written by GISuser   
21 March 2011

Explore impact scenarios of sea-level rise on specific coastal wetlands, including Chesapeake and Delaware bays and areas near Chincoteague refuge, with the newest version of a user-friendly and visually dynamic Web application, Sea-Level Affects Marshes Model (SLAMM).

The model was unveiled today at NOAA’s Coastal GeoTools conference by Image Matters LLC, an award-winning provider of geospatial IT solutions, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It is a useful model for researchers, managers, policy-makers and the public to visualize and quantify the impacts of sea-level rise on coastal wetlands.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, sea level is rising along most of the U.S. coast, and around the world. Rising sea levels inundate wetlands and other low-lying lands, erode beaches, intensify flooding and storm damage, and increase the salinity of rivers, bays and groundwater tables.

About Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM)

SLAMM-View is a web browser-based application that provides tools for improved understanding of results from research projects that employ the Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model (SLAMM). Version 2.0 of SLAMM-View was designed for a user-friendly, workflow-based approach to assess impacts of sea-level rise (SLR) on coastal areas with both visualization and analysis functionality. SLAMM-View provides simultaneous comparison between both current and future conditions out to the year 2100, and among different SLR scenarios (e.g., 0.4 meter vs. 1 meter), using interactive maps and tabular reporting capabilities. To date, SLAMM-View provides access to SLAMM simulation results for the entire coastlines of 5 states, and partial coverage of an additional 4 states. SLAMM-View can be used in either Quick Mode or Interactive Mode.

Quick Mode - Quickly compare maps of current and future conditions
nteractive Mode - Interactively select a Project, Region, Scenario, and Simulation Years or Compare maps of current and future conditions

 SLAMM-View presently provides access to the digital geospatial data results from SLAMM simulations run for three regional Projects, and three site-specific Projects:

   1. Georgia / South Carolina Region Project
   2. Chesapeake Region Project
   3. Puget Sound Region Project
   4. Chincoteague Site-specific Project
   5. Aransas / Whooping Crane Winter Habitat Site-specific Project
   6. Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve Site-specific Project

SLAMM-View 2.0 can be accessed at http://www.slammview.org/slammview2.
