S&T ADCIRC Model Fact Sheet

The ADvanced CIRCulation (ADCIRC) storm surge model combines rain, atmospheric pressure, and wind forecasts to predict when, where, and to what extent flooding will inundate a coastal community with greater precision than other available models. This enables decision-makers to identify which locations will become unsafe and plan for mitigation and response before severe storms occur.

In 2016, the U.S. experienced 32 major disaster declarations and six emergency declarations involving flooding.
