Title: model validation
Post by: gverutes on January 16, 2020, 06:31:59 AM

I recently applied SLAMM in Mexico along the Yucatan coast.  Can someone point me to validation examples from previous applications...perhaps in the US Gulf of Mexico?

Much appreciated,

A validation exercise was done for Louisiana in Glick et al.

Some other validation attempts were made in the Gulf of Mexico through

See "Hindcast results" in these reports:

Great White Heron NWR, FL (
Ten Thousand Islands NWR, FL (
Lower Suawnnee, FL (
MS Sandhill Crane NWR, MS (
San Bernard and Big Boggy NWRs, TX (

Validation is often confounded by -- lack of adequate historical SLR to cause impacts to wetlands, lack of high-quality historic land-cover and especially elevation datasets, and other anthropogenic changes to wetland cover (non-SLR losses)
