Storm and hurricane induced surges present a continuous threat to coastal areas across the globe. Deltares had developed a tropical cyclone modeling tool within the Delft Dashboard software in conjunction with the hydrodynamic model Delft3D , allowing an integrated, easy and fast set up of storm surge models under tropical cyclone conditions anywhere in the world. After this advanced course the participants will get insight into the working of Delft Dashboard alongside the hurricane toolbox, and they will be able to:
- Set-up a Delft3D storm surge model
- Nest a detailed model within this coast grid model and simulate storm surge / flooding
- Generate a high resolution tropical cyclone wind and pressure fields to force the models
Aspects related to merging of the tropical cyclone wind and pressure fields with a background wind will be discussed.
