Short summary
Coastal settlements face unprecedented pressures from sea level variations. To investigate such issues, we applied a land change model to simulate three scenarios of urban growth under different land use policies and validated the model in Bay County, Florida (USA). The work shows that strict flood mitigation strategies mitigate greatly the urban exposure to sea-level-rise-induced flooding. Planners and hazard mitigation teams can use the procedures to strengthen coastal planning and management.
