Abstract

The southern coast of Gulf of Maine is prone to flooding caused by northeasters, with the Patriot’s Day Storm in 2007 being a notable example. The state-of-the-art circulation model ADCIRC and spectrum wave model SWAN were applied to study the hydrodynamic response to the Patriot’s Day storm in the Gulf of Maine. The models can reasonably well simulate tides, storm surge and waves during this storm event. The underestimation of surge and wave may mainly result from the error in surface wind and pressure forcing.
