I am a little unclear about how the SLR scenario "scale-up" works. Can somebody clarify why the program produces output for an initial condition, then the next sequential year (I assume has to do with the scaling and setting DEM date to NWI date?), and then it starts the sequence of analysis for the specified time series??
For example, my NWI photo date is 2000, the DEM date is 1999. The maps produced through the analysis are for the initial condition, condition at year 2000 (??), then 2025, 2050, 2075, and 2100. There are very big differences between the initial land classes and year 2000 land classes, which seems questionable given the duration of the calculation (1 year).....
Another related question: If I've already set my DEM elevations to NWI dates as indicated on page 9 and 14 of the Technical Manual, why does SLAMM need to upscale at all?
I appreciate the clarification to my novice question!!
