Hurricane Ike Storm Surge

These results were based on the storm parameters in NHC Advisory #52. They represent a collaborative effort by the UNC Institute of Marine Sciences Coastal Circulation and Transport Laboratory, the Louisiana State University CERA group, and the University of Notre Dame Computational Hydraulics Laboratory; the simulation was executed on a supercomputer from the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative (LONI). The results should not be used for hurricane related decisions.
