Adaptive mesh refinement for storm surge modeling
Abstract: 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 scales required, but using simplified fluid equations and adaptive mesh refinement can greatly reduce computation time with minimal loss of accuracy. In this study we look at an application to Typhoon Haiyan and the potential challenges of this approach.
The next speaker is Axel Timmermann (International Pacific Research Center, University of Hawaii) on Monday, March 7, 2016, 4pm EST.
