© Copyright 2016 by the International Society of Offshore and Polar Engineers (ISOPE). Storm surge is a major cause of coastal flooding. Robust models have provided useful tools for storm surge forecasting and flood risk management. In this work, a finite volume shock-capturing shallow water equation model originally developed for flood simulation is improved and tested for storm surge modeling. For storm surge modeling, additional source terms are included to represent the wind stresses and atmospheric pressure variation. The performance of the improved model is validated and demonstrated through application to benchmark test cases.
