Hurricane Sandy Modeling


Vortex Meteorological Analysis

Seahorse Coastal is conducting a meteorological analysis of Sandy using the NWS19 vortex model embedded in ADCIRC and the BEST track ATCF data from the National Hurricane Center. The winds generated by the model are compared with the isotachs provided by National Hurricane Center. The 3D visualization at the top right represents surface wind velocities (at 10m), warped vertically upward to illustrate the magnitude of the wind speed.

Hurricane Sandy Data Assimilation

Sandy HWind Meteorological Analysis

Seahorse Coastal is conducting a meteorological analysis of Sandy using the HWind data produced by NOAA's Hurricane Research Division. The animation above represents a preliminary analysis using the same tools that were applied in the vortex analysis above.

Seahorse Coastal Consulting, LLC.

Seahorse Coastal Consulting is a startup company focused on real time storm surge guidance with ADCIRC; ADCIRC implementation, support, training, testing, and troubleshooting; validation of coastal physical oceanographic models; open-ended analysis of physical oceanographic data; and software development for coastal modeling and data analysis projects.

The data and software intensive nature of coastal ocean physics projects requires a deep familiarity with the technological tools and analysis techniques associated with ocean physics. The following representative publications from the Principals at Seahorse Coastal Consulting provide examples of our capabilities and experience:
