The Response of Storm Surge with Different Typhoon Tracks in Jiangsu Coastal Areas

S. L. Zhao and D. A. Wu
Abstract—A study on the impact of different typhoon tracks on Jiangsu coastal storm surge has been conducted by setting up several experiments respectively directing at different typhoon tracks, including Typhoon offshore distance, landing angle and sites, and by using the numerical model of storm surge constructed based on the SELFE model. The study findings suggest that the maximum storm surges in coastal areas of Jiangsu decrease mainly with increasing offshore distance of typhoon tracks, and as the typhoon track moves away from the shore, the storm surge offshore will increase. With the increase of landing angle, the maximum storm surges in radial sand ridges would gradually decrease and those in the south of radial sand ridges in Jiangsu coastal areas will first increase and then decrease, and those in the north of radial sand ridges in Jiangsu coastal areas would remain unchanged and then decrease.

Index Terms—Jiangsu coast, SELF model, storm surge, increase in water, typhoon track.
