Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model Visualization (SLAMM-View)
Entry ID: SLAMM


Summary
Abstract: Sea Level Affecting Marshes Model Visualization (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 3.0 of SLAMM-View was designed for (1) a user-friendly, workflow-based approach to assess impacts of sea-level rise (SLR) on coastal areas with both visualization and analysis functionality, and (2) to be mobile-friendly for use on your phone or tablet. 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 9 states, and partial coverage of an additional 12 states and 2 U.S territories.

The Authors of the SLAMM studies and/or the SLAMM-View application are the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, Warren Pinnacle Consulting Inc., Image Matters LLC, The Nature Conservancy, and the National Wildlife Federation. The Authors provide the information on this page, and/or the SLAMM model output data presented within the SLAMM-View application, for your personal use "as is." We gather information from different sources and agencies to give the users a wider selection of geographic themes as context for the SLAMM output. The areas depicted by these maps are approximate, and are not necessarily accurate to surveying or engineering standards. The maps shown here are for illustration purposes only and may not be suitable for highly localized site-specific decision making. We do not suggest that information found here be used for making financial or any other commitments. We provide this information with the understanding that it is not guaranteed to be accurate, correct or complete. Any conclusions drawn from such information are the responsibility of the user. While every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy, correctness and timeliness of materials presented anywhere within these pages, The Authors assume no responsibility for errors or omissions, even if The Authors are advised of the possibility of such damage.
