Fixed SLR start date

I was wondering when you select the "fixed rise by 2100" option when is the start date for this rise?  Is it the DEM date, the NWI date, the year 2000, or something else?  Also, if SLAMM is using the IPCC curves to calculate this, does it shift that curve at all or just start in on the IPCC curve at the start date that you give it.

Sorry about the delay in response.  Like the IPCC scenarios all SLR scenarios start in the year 1990 in SLAMM.  Curves are not shifted horizontally.  Therefore if you started your scenario in 2010 it would assume that the SLR predicted from 1990 to 2010 had already occurred and start adding SLR at that point.
