Assessment of modelled sea level rise impacts in the Gdańsk region ,Poland

Description

For the Gdańsk region, the SEAREG project’s sea level rise (SLR) scenarios vary from 0.04 m (low case), 0.49 m (ensemble average) and up to 0.98 m (high case). Several local digital elevation models were calculated with the help of GIS, and five SLR maps were produced. The impact assessment revealed the strongest impacts on the service sector, mainly tourism, since all beach areas will be affected, as well as the water supply. The vulnerability of the region is high since these impacts meet a coping capacity lacking the awareness, motivation and resources to identify sea level rise as a threat in future.
