  1. New tool improves storm surge predictions

    Offshore staff SOUTHAMPTON, UK – A free online resource is now available that uses satellite observations to improve storm surge forecasting. The eSurge project uses satellite-based radar altimetry data for wave and sea level data available to help improve modeling and forecasting of storm surge around the world. Raw data collected from altimeters have been re-processed and collated with wind speed data from scatterometers and sea level measurements from tide gauges, to show the spatial structure of each storm. Data from around 200 storms spanning more than 10 years is now accessible. UK’s National Oceanography Centre is one of five international organizations involved in the eSurge project, which also includes CGI (UK), the Danish Meteorological Institute (DK), the Coastal and Marine Research Centre (IRL), and the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute (NL). 02/03/2015
