Kopp, Robert E.; Rasmussen, D. J.

This MATLAB code is intended to help end-users who wish to work with the sea-level rise projections of Kopp et al. (2014) and successor papers in greater detail than provided by the supplementary tables accompanying that table but without re-running the full global analysis using the supplementary code accompanying the paper. Key functionality these routines provide include:

1. Local sea-level rise projections at decadal time points and arbitrary quantiles
2. Localized Monte Carlo samples, disaggregatable by contributory process
3. Localized variance decomposition plots


This code was originally developed to accompany the results of

    R. E. Kopp, R. M. Horton, C. M. Little, J. X. Mitrovica, M. Oppenheimer,
    D. J. Rasmussen, B. H. Strauss, and C. Tebaldi (2014). Probabilistic 21st
    and 22nd century sea-level projections at a global network of tide    gauge
    sites. Earth's Future 2: 287–306, doi:10.1002/2014EF000239.

Please cite that paper, along with the paper(s) associated with the specific projections you are using, when using any sea-level rise projections generated with this code.
