Storm Surge Predictions for the North Sea by the Quasi-Uniform Wind Pressure Field Method

  • S. Ishiguro
Conference paper


A new storm-surge prediction method is introduced here with two variations:
  • Type-A for a daily surge prediction, and

  • Type-B for a long term (e.g. once-in-50-years) extreme surge prediction.
