Mangrove Sedimentation and Response to Relative Sea-Level Rise.
Mangroves occur on upper intertidal shorelines in the tropics and subtropics. Complex hydrodynamic and salinity conditions, related primarily to elevation and hydroperiod, influence mangroveExpand

Indicator-based assessment of climate-change impacts on coasts: A review of concepts, methodological approaches and vulnerability indices
Abstract Increasing human pressures on coastlines and associated threats posed by sea-level rise have stimulated development of a range of different concepts and methodological approaches to assessExpand

Surface elevation change and vegetation distribution dynamics in a subtropical coastal wetland: Implications for coastal wetland response to climate change
Abstract The response of coastal wetlands to sea-level rise is receiving global attention and observed changes in the distribution of mangrove and salt marsh are increasingly associated with globalExpand

Mapping of mangrove extent and zonation using high and low tide composites of Landsat data
Monitoring mangrove health and distribution requires reliable methods that can be undertaken rapidly and at a resolution that optimises costs and accuracy. The Landsat record has been used for thisExpand

Validation and Comparison of a Model of the Effect of Sea-Level Rise on Coastal Wetlands
Models are used to project coastal wetland distribution under future sea-level rise scenarios to assist decision-making. Model validation and comparison was used to investigate error and uncertaintyExpand

Opportunities and challenges for mangrove carbon sequestration in the Mekong River Delta in Vietnam
Increasing value is attributed to mangroves due to their considerable capacity to sequester carbon, known as ‘blue carbon’. Assessments of opportunities and challenges associated with estimating theExpand

Moving from deterministic towards probabilistic coastal hazard and risk assessment: Development of a modelling framework and application to Narrabeen Beach, New South Wales, Australia
Traditional methods for assessing coastal hazards have not typically incorporated a rigorous treatment of uncertainty. Such treatment is necessary to enable risk assessments which are now required byExpand

An argument for probabilistic coastal hazard assessment: Retrospective examination of practice in New South Wales, Australia
Determination of coastal hazard lines is a key task for coastal engineers worldwide. While current practice differs from country to country and even within countries, in many coastal hazardExpand

Impacts and adaptation options for estuarine vegetation in a large city
Abstract Climate change adaptation options for natural systems are particularly challenging in high density urban settings. We model the vulnerability of estuarine vegetation (mangroves, saltmarshesExpand
