There's much to see here. So, take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about storm surge.
We developed a new hindcast for storm surge at a 0.25° spatial scale for the whole New Zealand area using a statistical downscaling technique that links the mean local atmospheric conditions with the maximum storm surge levels at a daily scale. After validating the hindcast against sea level instrumental records from 17 tidal gauges around New Zealand, the same technique has been applied to obtain storm surge projections until 2100 using different global climate models. The global climate models have been previously classified according to their ability to reproduce the past climatology in the studied area and 7 models have been selected in order to explore their effect on storm surge projections.
