CHIME Research: Hurricane and Storm-surge Modeling

The hurricane and storm surge modeling uses the Advanced Circulation (ADCIRC) model to generate high-resolution storm surge simulations that include inundation and fine-scale features. We are utilizing this modeling to advance the science of coupled hazard predictions, to quantify the predictability of storm surge, and to investigate the sensitivity of storm surge predictive skill to different contributors (e.g., hurricane track, high-resolution wind field, storm surge model) at various lead times.

The modeling will also be used in developing the prototype integrations of information and to run coupled experiments with the agent-based model.
