Project Name:Modeling the Combined Coastal and Inland Hazards from High-Impact Hurricanes
Other Research Participants/Partners:Isaac Ginis, University of Rhode Island
This project advances modeling capabilities of the real-time ADCIRC Prediction System for predicting hazards and potential impacts from tropical and extratropical cyclones on critical infrastructure and communities in the U.S. The primary focus is on improving wind, coastal ocean circulation, wave, and hydrological modeling of combined multiple hazard impacts in the Northeast region, including coastal flooding due to storm surge and inland flooding due to rainfall.
