ADCIRC Coastal Circulation and Storm Surge Model + SWAN Wave Model


The Coastal Emergency Risks Assessment (CERA) group delivers storm surge and wave predictions for impending or active tropical cyclones in the United States. Based on the Advanced Circulation and Storm Surge model (ADCIRC), the CERA web application provides an easy-to-use interactive web interface. Emergency managers, weather forecasters, and GIS specialists can retrieve real-time forecasting results to evaluate the impacts of a tropical event or to see the tide, wind-wave, and extra-tropical surge conditions on a daily basis.
