BOUSSINESQ TYPE MODELLING OF STORM SURGES

Sébastien de BRYE, Rodolfo Silva, Edgar Mendoza

Abstract


To get a better understanding of transient stages of storm surges, this work examines the response of a Boussinesq type model to a moving low pressure system forcing, discussing results through numerical simulations in one horizontal dimension.
