After the model has been calibrated for a given area, hundreds of hypothetical hurricanes are “run through” the model to determine each storm surge inundation pattern. The hypothetical hurricanes are systematically chosen to reflect variations in intensity, point of landfall, angle of approach and forward speed. Each model run presents the storm surge height for a number of model grid points, both along the open coast and well inland.
