  1. FEMA Region III Storm Surge Project Project Update Jeff Hanson Region III Storm Surge Project Manager USACE-FRF June 4, 2009 RENCI, Chapel Hill, NC

  2. Agenda 9:00 Welcome, introductions, logistics, (Hanson) 9:10 Project overview and milestone status (Hanson) 9:30 DEM status (Forte, Stillwell, Miller) 10:40 Grid generation (Atkinson, Roberts) 11:00 Tropical storm selection and methods (Vickery) 12:00 Lunch 1:00 Data archival and database (Gamiel) 1:20 Visualization (Blanton, ECSU) 1:40 Schedule update/issues (Drei-Horgan) 2:00 Region 3 production phase (Blanton) 3:00 Adjourn

  3. Phase 2 (2010) Compute and assess the Region III flood hazard values for 10-, 50-, 100-, and 500-yr return periods Project Objectives Phase 1 (2008-2009) Develop, validate and prepare a storm surge modeling capability for the assessment of future inundation risks in the FEMA Region III area • Consistent 10-m DEM for the region • Extratropical storm wind fields • Hurricane storm hazard (JPM approach) • Integrated flood risk modeling system • GIS database and display capacity

  5. Project Status Accomplishments • Bathy/Topo Inventory (NAP, NAO, NAB) • Draft DEM (RENCI, FRF, ARCADIS) • Initiate DEM Review (NAP, NAO, NAB) • Initiate mesh development (ARCADIS) • Establish JPM approach (ARA) • Storm selection and windfield development (Oceanweather) • Prototype modeling system (RENCI, ARA, Oceanweather, FRF) • Validation tools – Interactive Model Evaluation and Diagnostics System (IMEDS) (FRF)
