Work package leader : Not appointed at present
The objective of this work package is to develop early storm surge warning
systems. Therefore, tidal models have to be calibrated and particular
applications have to be designed. To provide these systems with data, hourly andreal time sea level data is required.
Groups at the Rijkswaterstaat (Netherlands) and POL (UK) have expressed an interest in contributing to the project. The principle challenge facing this work package is the harmonisation of regional and local scale tidal and storm surge models. Currently, the adaptation of models to specific applications preclude their general application to other areas (in the case of local tidal/surge models) or from large area to small scales (in the case of regional scale models). The development of generic tidal and storm surge models for flood prevention and management applications is the goal of this work package.
