Conveying Coastal Inundation Potential Associated with ET Cyclones
Track: Atmospheric, Climate and Weather
Authors: Adrienne Leptich
Impacts from storm surge associated with tropical and extratropical cyclones can prove to be extremely challenging for meteorologists to convey for many reasons. While there are graphical visualization tools to communicate potential storm surge inundation threats associated with tropical cyclones, they do not exist for extratropical cyclones. I've developed an ArcGIS tool for the latter to help the National Weather Service meet its mission of saving lives and property.
