Additional studies would be needed to add the annual high wave flooding and coastal erosion to the SLR-XA for those islands.The SLR-XA is an overlay of three hazards and does not account for interactive nature of these hazards as would be expected by natural processes.The Viewer is intended to provide map data depicting projections for future hazard exposure and assessing economic and other vulnerabilities due to rising sea levels.Users may view and download map data for: The Report was developed by Tetra Tech, Inc.
The modeling does not account for future (unknown) land use changes, including any adaptation measures.
As with all remotely sensed data, all features should be verified with a site visit.
More detailed modeling and analysis will be needed to assess exposure and vulnerability at the site level.
DISCLAIMER: The data and maps in this viewer illustrate the scale, not the exact location, of potential flooding and erosion with sea level rise.
The Hawaiʻi Sea Level Rise Viewer should be used only as a screening-level resource to support management decisions to address exposure and vulnerability to coastal hazards with sea level rise.
This scenario assumes GHG emissions continue to increase at their current rate and predicts as much as 3.2 feet of sea level rise by the year 2100.
