Sensitivity of impacts in 2100 to the seven uncertainty dimensions considered

DimensionNo. of people flooded, millions/yFlood cost, billion US$/yDike cost, billion US$/y
DEM759,5000.6
Population data202,2000.2
SSP6012,0003.1
RCP579,80012.0
GCM173,1003.3

  • Sensitivity is calculated as average difference between the maximum and minimum impacts in 2100 attained through varying inputs along a single uncertainty dimension while fixing the other six dimensions.
