Team Objectives

Delft3D-FM system with additional components such as XBeach, PIG-F, CoSMoS-COAST and SFINCS for the Eastern US and Gulf of Mexico.

Use a deterministic forecast and probabilistic approach for a single daily forecast of the nearshore wave, storm surge, currents, sediment transport, morphological change, breaches, flooding and structure response

FHICS – Successful forecast of Hurricane Ian impacts

Hurricane Ian was the first 2022 hurricane to make landfall in the continental USA with strong Cat 5 winds and large amounts of rain. The team of Deltares USA, Deltares Netherlands, USGS and NRL successfully applied the COSMOS modelling system to forecast hurricane Ian’s flood and morphological impact.
