Abstracts of the presentations given on Wednesday, 25 July 2007, in Session 10 of the UCOWR Conference.


Coastal Louisiana is characterized by low-lying topography and an intricate network of sounds, estuaries, bays, marshes, lakes, rivers and inlets that permit widespread inundation during hurricanes, such as that witnessed during the 2005 hurricane season with Katrina and Rita. A basin to channel scale implementation of the ADCIRC hydrodynamic model has been developed that simulates hurricane storm surge, tides and river flow in this complex region.
