Abstract


In several decades, climate change has been occurred due to warmer sea surface condition, and tropical cyclone will become more intense in the future. That means the storm surge risk is more increased. It is necessary to be an evaluation of the risk of the storm surge with inundation. In this study, numerical storm surge simulation with inundation of high-resolution are carried out and the influence of climate change on storm surge are simulated.

Keywords
