  1. 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...
