You can change the elevation ranges of all land cover classes through the Elevation Analysis window. See User Guide document.
There are other compilers, Free Pascal for example. We have not tested the compatibility with recent codes but last time it was tried, some of the syntax needed to be modified. Therefore some work may be required to successfully build a working executable.
One of the comment was: "....TF looses elevation at a rate of (BSR-SLR) mm/yr and normally converted to open water when it falls below -1 HTU (but you can change it if you think it is not corresponding to your study area). " Is it also defined in transfer.inc? (I looked but couldn't find it there)
Also, I don't have delphi and it seems to cost a bit. Is there any other compiler not being costly or free -- any suggestions? Please let me know. Thanks!
SLAMM can model uplift but unfortunately does not model the land cover changes due to aggradation. The model will not crash but for example a marsh area that keeps gaining elevation with respect to sea level will not become dry land at any point.
As a rule of thumb we usually consider it calibrated if the land cover conversion are less than 5% but if additional information explains observed conversions then the calibration can be considered acceptable. For example, if satellite maps show tidal flats instead of marshes then it may be acceptable to have a higher conversion.
After closer inspection the grey lines within the Riverine tidal polygon are actually strips of Estuarine polygons. The model is suggesting upriver/inland migration of the estuary but seems to be confused possibly by an adjacent side channel, thus causing a strange dynamic. I am not sure why upper boundary of the Riverine Tidal polygon has not migrated upriver/inland? Any suggestions to confirm or remedy this issue would be appreciated.
In our recent model run the SLAMM outputs for Estuarine and Riverine Tidal polygons are showing no deviation from existing conditions under a A1B max at 2100 and 2175. Shouldn't these boundaries be moving inland? What appears to be modeled are grey striations (multiple lines) within the Riverine Tidal polygon, more so at 2100. Is this a glitch in the model?
