Managing Hurricane Surge Risks in the Supercomputing Era
The following is a two-part article published in the Louisiana Civil Engineer May & August 2015.
Led/authored by Bob Jacobsen PE in 2006 (while at URS Corp) for the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (now CPRA).
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.)
