Global Climate Change and Regional Storm Surge Impacts

PI: Jay Ratcliff
Institution: US Army Corps of Engineers
Additional Investigators: Joannes Westerink, University of Notre Dame, John A. McCorquodale, University Of New Orleans
This study will have several objectives. The first objective is quantifying future storm surges in the northern Gulf of Mexico by forcing a regional model with GCM model results (boundary conditions). In light of the increasing destructiveness of hurricanes along the Gulf coast, as well as coastal land loss in Texas and Louisiana, this study will research the future impacts under various IPCC scenarios. Additionally, research will be conducted on GCM data sets related to the thermohaline circulation and its response to future climate change. Finally, statistical analyses will be performed with existing and potentially new models, with the objective of modeling the spatial and temporal frequency of extreme events, in light of the future climate change.
