The Direct Impact of the MRGO on Hurricane Storm Surge

Led/authored by Bob Jacobsen PE in 2006 for the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (then Depart of Natural Resources).

This project evaluated the role of the MRGO channel conveyance on regional hurricane storm surge.

The project included ADCIRC modeling of three Category 4 storms under present and fully closed MRGO scenarios

and conducting a sensitivity test of surge results to levee alignments.

(ADCIRC simulations were implemented with support from Himangshu Das and WorldWinds, Inc.)
