Simulations of Setup, Infragravity Swash, and Incident Swash Compared

Detailed Description

Observations and XBeach simulations of setup (a), infragravity swash (b), and incident swash (c) compared to values parameterized using the Stockdon and others (2006) model. Comparisons to video-based observations are shown in green. Comparisons to numerical simulations using XBeach are shown in red and blue. Numerically simulated hurricane conditions (black) are used to determine if the parameterization can be extended to extreme storm events or modifications are needed.
