This report describes the methodology for computing storm-surge surface elevations verses frequency of occurrence relationships for the U.S. Territory of American Samoa. Maximum inundation levels were computed from combination of representative tidal elevations, storm surge, wave-induced setup, ponding level on fringing reefs and wave runup. The statistical approach taken to calculated frequency-of-occurrence relationships was the Empirical Simulation Technique, which applies historical wave information and a nearest neighbor technique for simulating random storm events. Each phase of the study is described in detail and study results are presented in graphics and tables.
