Summary
Abstract: A coastal vulnerability index (CVI) was used to map the relative vulnerability
of the coast to future sea-level rise within Olympic National Park (OLYM),

contribution to sea-level rise-related coastal change: geomorphology, regional
coastal slope, rate of relative sea-level rise, shoreline change rates, mean
tidal range and mean ... View entire text
