Project: A multi-tiered ADCIRC-based storm surge and wave prediction system
Other Research Participants/Partners: Rick Luettich, Chris Calloway and Crystal Fulcher,UNC-Chapel Hill; Jason Fleming, Seahorse Coastal Consulting
Project Description: Decision-makers need critical and helpful information delivered on time and in formats that are easily understandable. This is particularly true with dangerous and destructive natural hazards such as hurricanes and the resulting wind, storm surge, and wave impacts. Late and/or incomprehensible information is useless. This DHS CRC project is about reducing the time needed to deliver hazard information to end users by using advanced models for storm surge, very high performance computing resources, and statistical methods that can provide early guidance information in a matter of minutes as opposed to hours.
Research Interests: Sea-level rise and coastal flood hazards; application of high-performance computing to tide, storm surge, and wind wave modeling
