Pacific Island Groundwater and Future Climates: First-pass Regional Vulnerability Assessment Map 4: Potential vulnerability of groundwater in the Pacifc region to future sea level (2070-2099)


This map shows the relative potential vulnerability of groundwater systems on islands in the Pacific region to relative mean sea-level rise (SLR) for the period of 2070- 2099 considering sea-level rise data under a higher emissions scenario (RCP8.5). Potential vulnerability was assessed for the assumed principal aquifier on islands with potential for supporting permanent fresh groundwater. This map was developed by Geoscience Australia for the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme.

This map is Map 3 of a series of 7 maps that were developed as part of the Pacific Island Groundwater and Future Climates: First-pass Regional Vulnerability Assessment  http://dx.doi.org/10.11636/Record.2014.043. The maps were developed by Geoscience Australia for the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Planning (PACCSAP) programme.
