Fig. 2. Cross section profiles for the various IPCC sea level rise scenarios. Each profile is coordinated with a yellow transect line in Figure 1. Color legend is the same as in Figure 1. The ordinate axis includes all components of relative sea level rise, expressed in NAVD 88 meter units. In these hypsometric representations, ‘rising water’ is relatively the same as ‘sinking land’. The solid black line is present day elevation. The relative elevation ranges at which each plant community zone exists remain the same through time (right side bars), while accretion processes appear to alter the profile shapes slightly in some areas.
