Abstract:

A summary of storm surge highwater mark hydrograph and wave data acquired during and subsequent to Hurricane Alicia is presented. The data were obtained and assembled as part of a long-term research effort by the Corps of Engineers to establish a quantitative data set with the objective of providing, in a series of documents, the data necessary for simulation and verification of numerical surge models. The data contained herein were obtained primarily by the Waterways Experiment Station and the Galveston District of the Corps of Engineers with supplemental data from contributing agencies and institutions. Additional information is included in the form of photographs and descriptive narrative to aid investigators in assessing the degree of importance of an individual measurement for the purpose of model verification. Elevation, Spectra, Frequency, Graphs.
