Over the past two decades ADCIRC (http://adcirc.org) has become one of, if not the most widely used community modeling platform for storm surge / coastal flooding predictions across academia, governmental agencies and the private sector. The ADCIRC Prediction System (APS) manages ADCIRC on HPC resources for real-time computation of coastal hazards. This project is expanding the existing APS to incorporate new forcing mechanisms and models (NOAA’s new WaveWatch3, COAMPS-Tropical Cyclone forcing, and XBeach) and new features such as coastal erosion and sediment transport and damage assessment tools.
RENCI is implementing a new data assimilation system for the ADCIRC Prediction System. Rick Luettich leads the project. Brian Blanton leads the RENCI components of the project.
