Conceptual diagram used to assess potential sea-level rise impacts

Conceptual diagram showing the structure of the Bayesian network used to assess potential sea-level rise impacts on the coastal landscape. Here sea-level projections (SL) and vertical land movement (VLM) are driving forces (green boxes), elevation (E) and land cover (LC) are boundary conditions (red boxes), and adjusted elevation (AE) and coastal response type (CR) (blue
