Tidal inundation modeling within GIS
Department or Administrative Unit
When conducting ecological research on tidal mudflats, understanding how long any given area is underwater is vitally important. This paper describes a method for calculating the percent inundation time for a single tidal cycle (neap to spring tide) within a GIS environment. The primary variable is elevation, thus, having an accurate digital elevation model (DEM) is critical. Output from the model can then be integrated into existing biological databases to help interpret and understand the ecology of tidal mudflats.
