Model Formulation & Parameters / Input and default values
February 10, 2010, 09:03:32 AM
I am new to SLAMM and am working on a project where we want to apply the model to the North Carolina coast. I am trying to familiarize myself with the model and how it works. I have a question about how the input values for the model (swamp erosion, salt marsh vertical accretion . . . etc.) are being generated. I assume users of the model are creating their own unique values, but are there default values for the input categories that are sometimes used when there is no data available for a category and if there are default values, what is the science behind them?

I have looked in the Technical manual, user manual, and the completed samples from Florida and Washington, but have not been able to find an answer to this question. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
