VERIFICATION OF WEATHER CONDITION FOR HIGH WAVE AND STORM SURGE ESTIMATION DUE TO EXPLOSIVE CYCLONE
AbstractThere is concern that the disaster risk of high wave and storm surge due to explosive cyclone is increasing around Japan with the global warming as a cause. When studying the disaster prevention of high wave and storm surge, high wave and storm surge estimation is a cogent means. In order to maintain higher estimation accuracy, reproducibility of weather field as external force condition is important. Even among them, the accuracy of empirical weather model is important for probabilistic risk assessment for waves and storm surges. However, there are few examples to apply empirical weather model to explosive cyclone. Therefore, we applied empirical typhoon model to explosive cyclones and the applicability to wave and storm surge estimations is verified.
