02 Nov 2019 - publication - English New elevation data triple estimates of global vulnerability to sea-level rise and coastal flooding
AUTHORS: Scott A. Kulp & Benjamin H. Strauss. ABSTRACT: Most estimates of global mean sea-level rise this century fall below 2 m. This quantity is comparable to the positive vertical bias of the principle digital elevation model (DEM) used to assess global and national population exposures to extreme coastal water levels, NASA’s SRTM. CoastalDEM is a new DEM utilizing neural networks to reduce SRTM error. Here we show – employing CoastalDEM—that 190 M people (150–250 M, 90% CI) currently occ...
