Numerical Modelling of Storm Surges in River Estuaries
Any mathematical model of tidal flow in a given river estuary must satisfy two main objectives if its use is to be justified. The first of these objectives is to provide a reasonably accurate prediction of water level elevations resulting from particular weather conditions, while the second is to provide long-term statistical data on maximum water levels. Such data are essential in the design of efficient flood prevention measures.
