Coastal wetland vulnerability to submergence as an effect of sea level rise has been the focus many research in recent years. The data set presented here shows summarizes the results of an eco-geomorphic model developed for a wetland site in the Hunter Estuary, Australia. The model integrates spatially distributed hydrodynamic simulations that accounts for hydraulic attenuations from control structures and vegetation. Hydrodynamic simulations are used to describe the tidal regimen, which is then integrated with vegetation specific rules and an eco-geomorphic accretion model to simulate dynamics of the vegetation. The dataset shows predicted changes in wetland vegetation over 100 years under sea level rise projections (IPCC RCP8.5) and hydrodynamics are described with a single parameter (D) which corresponds to the average depth below higher spring high tide calculated for each point within the wetland. The simulations show results for three management scenarios in the site. See references for a full description of the model and other relevant data.
