This paper introduces a coastal modeling tool based on the solution of the 2D shallow water equations (SWEs) on a novel adaptive Cartesian grid system. While providing dynamically adaptive solutions, the new grid system is easy to implement and maintains the desirable property of a structured Cartesian grid. On such a grid, the governing equations are solved using a finite volume Godunov-type scheme that is designed to ensure non-negativity of water depth for applications involving moving shoreline over complex domain topography. The new model is validated against several analytical and numerical benchmark tests. © 2010 by The International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE).
