Storm Tide Risk Assessment and High Resolution Modelling of Historic Tropical Cyclone Storm Tides in Nadi Bay, Fiji


This report details information on tropical cyclone (TC) induced storm surges and coastal sea levels. It summarises how the risk of these events may change under future climate scenarios and provides detailed hydrodynamic modelling of two recent TCs with a focus on the spatial variation of extreme sea levels along the Nadi coastline. This high resolution modelling highlights uncertainties in extreme sea level predictions associated with large gaps in high resolution bathymetry and topography near shore.
