Optimum Scheme of Adaptive Mesh Refinement for Tsunami Simulation
This study applied the Adaptive Mesh Refinement (AMR) method for calculation of long wave propagations, and the different mesh refinement schemes were applied and optimized by a series of numerical experiments.
An Implementation of Adaptive Mesh Refinement for Shallow Water Equations
An implementation of adaptive mesh refinement algorithms is presented for use with multilayer shallow water equations, which have been implemented in GeoClaw previously but were too computationally expensive to run on large domains while resolving detail in coastal regions.
Coastal hazard assessment and mitigation requires a thorough understanding of extreme events such as severe storm surge. Limited observations and a changing climate pose an additional challenges for
An adaptive discontinuous Galerkin method for the simulation of hurricane storm surge
A DG storm surge model on a triangular and dynamically adaptive mesh driven by physics-based refinement indicators capturing major model sensitivities is developed which shows the model’s potential for use as a robust simulation tool for real-time predictions.
Accelerating an Adaptive Mesh Refinement Code for Depth‐Averaged Flows Using GPUs
An efficient CUDA implementation of GeoClaw, an open source Godunov‐type high‐resolution finite volume numerical scheme on adaptive grids for shallow water system with varying topography, is presented, which implements a simplified dimensionally split version of the algorithms.
Validation of the FAST forecast model for the storm surges due to hurricanes Wilma and Ike
This paper validates the FAST model by conducting numerical simulations of the storm surges due to hurricanes Wilma on Lake Okeechobee and Ike in the Gulf of Mexico and shows that, with sufficient computational resource, low runtimes are possible for real-world surge simulations.
Storm Surge Modeling as an Application of Local Time-stepping in MPAS-Ocean
This paper presents the first scientific application of local time-stepping (LTS) schemes in the Model for Prediction Across Scales-Ocean (MPAS-O). We use LTS schemes in a single-layer, global ocean
Efficient Tsunami Modeling on Adaptive Grids with Graphics Processing Units (GPUs)
This work presents an efficient CUDA implementation of GeoClaw, an open source Godunov-type high-resolution finite volume numerical scheme on adaptive grids for shallow water system with varying topography, which implements a simplified dimensionally-split version of the algorithms.

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.
Tsunami modelling with adaptively refined finite volume methods*
These issues are discussed in the context of Riemann-solver-based finite volume methods for tsunami modelling in a ‘wellbalanced’ manner and also apply to a variety of other geophysical flows.
Adaptive Mesh Refinement Using Wave-Propagation Algorithms for Hyperbolic Systems
An adaptive mesh refinement algorithm developed for the Euler equations of gas dynamics has been extended to employ high-resolution wave-propagation algorithms in a more general framework, including hyperbolic equations not in conservation form, problems with source terms or capacity functions, and logically rectangular curvilinear grids.
Scalability of an Unstructured Grid Continuous Galerkin Based Hurricane Storm Surge Model
This paper evaluates the parallel performance and scalability of an unstructured grid Shallow Water Equation (SWE) hurricane storm surge model. We use the ADCIRC model, which is based on the
The influence of domain size on the response characteristics of a hurricane storm surge model
The influence of domain size on boundary condition specification and on computed storm surge response is investigated. Storm surge response along the Florida shelf in the Gulf of Mexico due to

Hindcast and validation of Hurricane Ike (2008) waves, forerunner, and storm surge
Hurricane Ike (2008) made landfall near Galveston, Texas, as a moderate intensity storm. Its large wind field in conjunction with the Louisiana-Texas coastline's broad shelf and large scale concave
An Analytic Model of the Wind and Pressure Profiles in Hurricanes
Abstract An analytic model of the radial profiles of sea level pressure and winds in a hurricane is presented. The equations contain two parameters which may be empirically estimated from
Origin of the Hurricane Ike forerunner surge
A large, unpredicted, water level increase appeared along a substantial section of the western Louisiana and northern Texas (LATEX) coasts 12–24 hrs in advance of the landfall of Hurricane Ike
