  5. 5. Impacts of future sea level rise and high water on roads, railways and environmental objects: a GIS analysis of the potential effects of increasing sea levels and highest projected high water in Scania, Sweden

    Author : Emilie Jideblad Arnesten; [2019]
    Keywords : geography; Geographical Information Systems; GIS; sea level; sea level rise; climate change; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : This study uses GIS analyses to investigate the risk that increasing sea levels and highest projected highwater pose by increasing the risk of inundation on state-owned roads and railways as well as environmental objects in their side areas. This is done through an assessment of sea level rise projections and a risk analysis, which points out where vulnerable features are located and provides timeframes and durations for the risk.
