Characterizing the Non-linear Interactions Between Tide, Storm Surge, and River Flow in the Delaware Bay Estuary, United States

Ziyu Xiao, Zhaoqing Yang, Taiping Wang, Ning Sun, Mark Wigmosta and David Judi DOI: 10.3389/fmars.2021.715557 Abstract: Low-lying coastal areas in the mid-Atlantic region are prone to compound flooding resulting from the co-occurrence of river floods and coastal storm surges. To better understand the contribution of non-linear tide-surge-river interactions to compound…

The FLOod Probability Interpolation Tool (FLOPIT): A Simple Tool to Improve Spatial Flood Probability Quantification and Communication

Mahkameh Zarekarizi, K. Joel Roop-Eckart, Sanjib Sharma, Klaus Keller DOI: 10.3390/w13050666 Abstract: Understanding flood probabilities is essential to making sound decisions about flood-risk management. Many people rely on flood probability maps to inform decisions about purchasing flood insurance, buying or selling real-estate, flood-proofing a house, or managing floodplain development. Current…

Evidence for Coupling Between the Subseasonal Oscillations in the Southern Hemisphere Midlatitude Ocean and Atmosphere

Daokai Xue, Jian Lu, Yun Qian and Yaocun Zhang DOI: https://doi.org/10.1029/2020JD033872 Abstract: A regional perspective is taken to investigate the intriguing ∼25-day periodicity in the Southern Hemisphere (SH) baroclinic annular mode (BAM) and the possible underlying mechanisms. Results show that the 25-day periodicity exists not only in the zonal average…
