A Basin to Channel-Scale Unstructured Grid Hurricane Storm Surge Model Applied to Southern Louisiana
Abstract Southern Louisiana is characterized by low-lying topography and an extensive network of sounds, bays, marshes, lakes, rivers, and inlets that permit widespread inundation during hurricanes.Expand

Modeling hurricane waves and storm surge using integrally-coupled, scalable computations
Abstract The unstructured-mesh SWAN spectral wave model and the ADCIRC shallow-water circulation model have been integrated into a tightly-coupled SWAN + ADCIRC model. The model components areExpand

Compatible algorithms for coupled flow and transport
The issue of mass conservation in numerical methods for flow coupled to transport has been debated in the literature for the past several years. In this paper, we address the loss of accuracy and/orExpand

Hurricane Gustav (2008) Waves and Storm Surge: Hindcast, Synoptic Analysis, and Validation in Southern Louisiana
AbstractHurricane Gustav (2008) made landfall in southern Louisiana on 1 September 2008 with its eye never closer than 75 km to New Orleans, but its waves and storm surge threatened to flood theExpand

A discontinuous Galerkin method for two-dimensional flow and transport in shallow water
Abstract A discontinuous Galerkin (DG) finite element method is described for the two-dimensional, depth-integrated shallow water equations (SWEs). This method is based on formulating the SWEs as aExpand

Performance of the Unstructured-Mesh, SWAN+ADCIRC Model in Computing Hurricane Waves and Surge
Coupling wave and circulation models is vital in order to define shelf, nearshore and inland hydrodynamics during a hurricane. The intricacies of the inland floodplain domain, level of required meshExpand

High Resolution Schemes for Conservation Laws with Locally Varying Time Steps
We develop upwind methods which use limited high resolution corrections in the spatial discretization and local time stepping for forward Euler and second order time discretizations. $L^\infty$Expand
