    The National Hurricane Center forecasts storm surge using the SLOSH model, which is an abbreviation for Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes. The model is accurate to within 20 percent. SLOSH inputs include the central pressure of a tropical cyclone, storm size, the cyclone's forward motion, its track, and maximum sustained winds. #Sewells Point, VA: 11/01/ GMT (units in feet MSL) #Date(GMT), Surge, Tide, Obs, Fcst, Anom, Comment # 10/30 18Z, , , , ,

Author: John F. Townsend. SLOSH—which stands for Sea Lake and Overland Surge from Hurricanes —is a computerized numerical model developed by the National Weather Service to estimate storm surge heights.

This tool displays the results of the SLOSH model to help emergency managers plan for evacuations, view the latest National Hurricane Center real-time runs, and educate decision makers.

The SLOSH model collects data on surge levels such as estimated storm surge heights and winds based on pressure, size, forward speed and track, according to the NHC’s website. The SLOSH model computes storm surge heights from tropical cyclones using pressure, size, forward speed, and track data to create a model of the wind field which pushes the water around.

(A portion of the surge is caused by the low pressure at the center of the hurricane, but this effect is small in comparison to the wind effects.). ABOUT: GUIDANCE from the Probabilistic Tropical Storm Surge (P-Surge) model For NWS' official FORECAST please go here. The Coastal and Estuarine Storm Tide (CEST) model for the boundary-fitted curvilinear grid has been developed recently to simulate a hurricane-induced storm surge.

A new wetting-drying algorithm was based on accumulated volume and was created for simulating overland flooding. To evaluate the capability of the CEST model, it was compared with the well-established storm surge model—Sea.

Recalling the input variables for the SLOSH model, note that wind speed is not one of the required input variables despite this discussion on wind speed, force, and set-up.

SLOSH calculates a wind speed given the input variables (Jelesnianski, ), therefore observed wind speed is not entered into the model. Predicting storm surge is then the. 3 The JRC Storm Surge Calculation System The JRC Storm Surge Calculation System is a new development that has been established at the Joint Research Centre in the frame of the Global Disasters Alerts and Coordination System (GDACS).

The system is intended as a series of procedures that. The varying colors indicate the probability for each foot of storm surge as projected by the National Hurricane Center.

The Storm Surge Unit, part of the Technical Support Branch, is a small group of highly trained meteorologists and oceanographers specializing in predicting storm surge heights accompanying landfalling tropical cyclones using the Sea, Lake, and Overland Surges from Hurricanes computer model.

As an integral part of the National Hurricane Center. To continually improve the quality of operational storm surge guidance and decision support tools used by NWS's National Hurricane Center (NHC), Ocean Prediction Center (OPC), regional headquarters, coastal Weather Forecast Offices (WFOs) and River Forecast Centers (RFCs), along with NWS operational partners such as local Emergency Managers (EMs), Department of Homeland Security.

The SLOSH model was run using these inputs to create a modeled water surface for the operational analysis of impacts from Hurricane Irene (Figure 9). SLOSH model runs predicted a storm surge of approximately feet (2 m), referenced to NGVD29 vertical datum.

The SLOSH model and the SLOSH Display Program (SDP) are two different tools. The SLOSH model is used by the National Hurricane Center to forecast storm surge and model storm surge vulnerability; the SDP is the software provided to emergency managers and other users to visualize the data produced by the National Hurricane Cennter.

Storm Surge Probabilities - The Hurrtrak system has the ability to display both graphically and through reports, storm surge probabilities for 2' - 25’. This combined with enhanced SLOSH information, provides users with the most detailed storm surge information available.

Part one, an operational computer program, has been expanded in part two to accommodate storms with generalized motions of not too great complexity.

As suggested by previous studies (Frazier et al., ), the effects of future sea-level rise on storm surge inundation were comparable to increasing the magnitude of a hurricane to which a coastline is exposed, although this conclusion may be contingent upon the selected storm surge model and elevation data used in the current example, the land area associated with hazard zones.

Abstract: The National Weather Service has developed a hurricane storm surge model, SLOSH, for real-time surge forecasts as a hurricane threatens. The model is being applied to 22 basins, covering most of the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic coastal areas of the United States.

Recently, the model has been used as a tool for hurricane evacuation planners to delineate areas of potential hurricane. B. The SLOSH Model The principal tool utilized in this study for analyzing the expected hazards from potential hurricanes affecting the study area is the Sea, Lake and Overland Surges from Hurricanes (SLOSH) numerical storm surge prediction model.

One of the state-of-the-art techniques is to run high resolution storm surge models such as ADCIRC utilizing hundreds of computers (or CPUs) in parallel (Fleming et al.
