Adaptive mesh refinement for storm surge modeling
03 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Marc Pierre Kjerland
Coastal inundation such as storm surge is a major concern for many of the world's population centers, and recent disasters such as Hurricane Sandy and Typhoon Haiyan highlight the growing risks of climate change. Numerical simulation of storm surge can be challenging due to the large spatial...
