Title: Modeling tsunami damage in Aceh: a reply
Author: Iverson, Louis R.; Prasad, Anantha M.;
Source: Landscape Egology. 23: 7-10.
Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)
Description: In reply to the critique of Baird and Kerr, we emphasize that our model is a generalized vulnerability model, built from easily acquired data from anywhere in the world, to identify areas with probable susceptibility to large tsunamis--and discuss their other criticisms in detail. We also show that a rejection of the role of trees in helping protect vulnerable areas is not justified in light of existing evidence.
Keywords: coastal forests, tsunami vulnerability, random forest, Aceh, mangrove
