Coastal Surge and Inundation

Professor Shaowu Bao focuses on the improvement of coastal forecast and the interactions of ocean and atmosphere in the coastal zone. He uses SANTEE and PEEDEE to perform simulations of coastal surges and inundation using the coupled Earth System Modeling Framework (ESMF) modeling framework, consisting of WRF, ROMS, and the SWAN (Simulation Waves Nearshore) models.
