Abstract:

A numerical investigation of the hurricane surge stage-frequency relationship has been performed for a 14.3-mile section of the Atlantic coast of Dade County, Florida. An idealized coast was used to represent current improvements to erosion and hurricane protection structures being supervised by the U. S. Army Engineer District, Jacksonville. The vertically integrated equations of motion are solved, using the formalism of the orthogonal curvilinear numerical open-coast surge model, SSURGE III. This model includes Coriolis effects, surface wind stress, bottom frictional stress, and the inverted barometer effect, but omits the nonlinear convective acceleration terms.
