XBeach Bottom Friction Scenarios: Model Inputs and Results for Hurricane Katrina Default Friction Scenario

Online link https://cmgds.marine.usgs.gov/catalog/spcmsc/Katrina_Default_Friction.faq.html
Description Using the numerical model XBeach version 4926 (Roelvink and others, 2009), various bottom friction scenarios were simulated for hurricanes Ivan (2004) and Katrina (2005) at Dauphin Island, Alabama as described in Passeri and others, 2018. The XBeach model setup requires the input of a merged topographic and bathymetric digital elevation model (DEM), and inputs of wave spectra (based on significant wave height, peak wave period and wave direction) and water level (tide and surge) time series. Model inputs and outputs in the form of topography and bathymetry are provided in this data release. For further information regarding model input generation and visualization of model output topography and bathymetry, refer to Passeri and others, 2018. [More]
