  • Alternative Title:
    New approach for tide forecasts and coastal flood warnings
  • Personal Author:
  • Description:
    "Tide forecasts have been a crucial component for marine navigation for centuries, and more recently greater attention has been placed on impacts of coastal inundation due to population increases along the immediate shoreline and concerns over potential sea level rise. The National Weather Service (NWS) issues Coastal Flood Warnings, but the process has lacked consistency and specificity. This paper addresses a multifaceted process designed to enhance the value of Coastal Flood Warnings. This work has been an offshoot of an initiative sponsored by the North Atlantic Regional Team (NART) and has focused on New England pilot communities. However, the techniques described in this paper are more broadly applicable. Extratropical storms (mostly nor'easters) have a more frequent impact on the New England coastline, and this work has focused primarily on coastal flooding from nor'easters"--Abstract.
