Abstract : This document summarizes the coastal storm wave and water level modeling effort performed in support of the North Atlantic Coast Comprehensive Study (NACCS). This effort involved the application of a suite of high-fidelity numerical models within the Coastal Storm Modeling System (CSTORM-MS). The study was conducted to provide information for computing the joint probability of coastal storm environmental forcing parameters for the U.S. North Atlantic Coast (NAC) because this… 

Mapping the coastal risk for the next century, including sea level rise and changes in the coastline: application to Charlestown RI, USA

A source–pathway-receptor method is used to assess the risk of the coastal community of Charlestown, RI, USA, to the 100-year storm, including effects of sea level rise (SLR) and shoreline/dune

Modeling the impact of sea level rise on maximum water elevation during storm surge events: a closer look at coastal embayments

Storm-surge models are commonly used to assess the impacts of hurricanes and coastal storms in coastal areas. Including the impact of the projected future sea level rise (SLR) in these models is a

Modeling the Impact of Sea Level Rise on  Maximum Water Elevation During  Storm Surge Events; A Closer Look at Coastal Embayments

Storm-surge models are commonly used to assess the impacts of hurricanes and coastal storms in coastal areas. Including the impact of the projected future sea level rise (SLR) in these models is a

Simulation of Hurricane Loading for Proposed Offshore Windfarms off the US Northeast Coast

The development of offshore wind projects off the US northeast coast requires a comprehensive assessment of extreme loads generated by hurricanes. In this study, we demonstrated that using simplified

Estimating the Annual Exceedance Probability of Water Levels and Wave Heights from High Resolution Coupled Wave-Circulation Models in Long Island Sound

Accurately estimating the probability of storm surge occurrences is necessary for flood risk assessments. This research models Long Island Sound using a coupled coastal circulation and wave model

Quantification of uncertainty in probabilistic storm surge models : literature review

Probabilistic coastal hazard assessment is characterized by the relationship between storm hazards, such as storm surge, and corresponding annual exceedance probability. The probabilistic analysis of

Wave power trends along the U.S. coastline: in situ measurements and model hindcast estimates

Observational data are successfully assessed to investigate wave power (wave energy flux per unit of wave-crest) trends within four coastal regions around the US, a parameter that is deemed vital to

PREDICTING 100-YEAR STORM WAVE'S RUNUP FOR THE COAST OF RHODE ISLAND USING A FULLY NONLINEAR MODEL

A phase resolving model (FUNWAVE) is used to simulate the 100-year storm. Results are compared to those of the FEMA approved phase averaged model STWAVE, allowing for a direct comparison of water

Numerical simulation of coastal erosion and its mitigation by living shoreline methods : A case study in southern Rhode Island

Page 13 Coastal communities on the East Coast of the United States (US) are likely to experience a greater impact from tropical storms in the future.1 In addition to sea level rise (SLR), a number of
