Description: Miscellaneous paper
Abstract: This report describes the methodology for computing storm surge surface elevation versus frequency-of-occurrence relationships for the island of Guam, the largest and most populous island in the Mariana group. Because maximum water levels represent the combination of waves, tides, and storm surge, the approach to be used in this study is based on the use of the long-wave numerical model WIFM, use of existing deepwater wave conditions for ponding and wave setup computations, and implementation of the joint probability method approach for developing frequency relationships. The report provides a detailed description of each phase of the study. Stage-frequency and computed wave setup and runup profiles are included in the report appendices.
