XBeach Bottom Friction Scenarios: Model Inputs and Results

December 8, 2017

Various bottom friction scenarios were simulated for hurricanes Ivan and Katrina at Dauphin Island, AL, using XBeach, as described in Passeri and others, 2017. Model inputs and outputs in the form of topography are provided here. For further information regarding model input generation and visualization of model output topography and bathymetry, refer to Passeri and others, 2017.
