Saltwater Intrusion Vulnerability Index (SIVI)

Part of this research project is targeted at assessing the level of saltwater intrusion risk in our study area. Below is our current version of the Saltwater Intrusion Vulnerability Index (SIVI), which represents saltwater intrusion risk under current conditions, including elevation, proximity to saltwater sources, and hydrological characteristics. Warmer colors indicate higher relative levels of risk, while cooler colors indicate lower levels of relative risk.
