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.
